Multi-millionaire Henry Reynard met Jessica on a book judging panel and invited her to his private island to earn a $1,000,000 check for a charity of her choice. However, to her horror, Henry wants her help finding out which of Henry's heirs intends to kill him: son Jason, daughter Valery, granddaughter Kim and their partners. Jessica refuses, but, while she stays for the weekend, Dr. Hubbard Dabney finds Henry has been shot. The heirs are appalled the $50,000,000 estate goes to Jessica. Later, Preston, Kim's fiancé, whom a P.I. report (found in Henry's desk) exposed as a fraud, is found shot in the pool-house. Now Henry reemerges. He had staged his death with the doc's help and installed some hidden cameras. Jessica is disgusted but helps Sheriff Brademus wrap up the investigation.
Did You Know?
The helicopter delivering Jessica to the island (N57497) is a Bell 206L-1 LongRanger II c/n: 45510. These are distinguished from the standard JetRanger by the larger cabin and the single rectangular shaped exhaust aimed straight back from the engine cowling rather than the two round exhausts angled out each side of the back of the cowling.
