Eighteen-year-old Reggie Dettman from Philadelphia, Mississippi, waits out a violent storm on the front porch of a stranger’s small, neat, house on Monarch Mountain, Arkansas.  He knocks and calls, but no one answers.  He is unaware of the horrible crime that has just been committed in the kitchen or that the killer is watching him from his hiding place.  The hurricane-like wind is blowing rain through an open window into the living room.   Reggie tugs on the screen door to go inside to close the window.  It is latched from the inside so he eases along the eaves of the house and removes the screen from the window so he can close it.  He sees movement inside. 

            There has never been a murder on Monarch Mountain and the entire community of Crystal Ridge, Arkansas blames the only stranger in their community – a hippy who is there under the guise of a book salesman. 

             Marty and Angelette witness the murderer’s strange behavior at Lovers Bluff but because of their clandestine meeting, they are afraid to report it.

            How can the wounds of the victims of gossip be salved?  The words cannot be taken back, the wounds are deep and destructive.   Who will judge and give justice? 

            You will be riveted by the suspense of who killed Elizabeth McNair.  The surprising twists and turns woven into the plot will keep you glued to the pages. 



To do justice and judgment

is more acceptable to the LORD

than sacrifice.


Proverbs 21:3

The Bible  (KJV)
