Detective Stan Shepherd lies comatose in the hospital, a victim of arsenic poisoning. The Newpointe police have a suspect: Celia Shepherd, Stan’s wife. Celia is no stranger to such charges. When her first husband died of poisoning, a technicality scuttled the case against her, and Celia got off scot-free. Now it looks like the same story–only this time, the motive seems plain. Celia’s old flame has come to town under suspicious circumstances. And more evidence is gathering that could put Celia away for good. But attorney Jill Clark thinks the puzzle pieces fit together too neatly. Either her client’s Christian faith is a sham, or she’s the victim of a deadly frame-up–and the real killer is still afoot.
