Murder First Then Slander

Harriet Love Nelson was born tarnished into the ruling society of remote, devout Coltonsville. Finding the attractive young widow murdered in her bed seemed a fittingly titillating finale to her unconventional life.

Then lawmen discover a hundred sets of fingerprints in her bedroom, and rumors of who they might belong to upend the already frenzied town. Even after the case seems to have cooled, a lone detective continues to search, eventually connecting Harriet’s murder to a sprawling gambling and offshore money laundering operation.

Far from resting in peace, Harriet craves a cosmic reckoning to right the wrongs leveled against her. And that’s just what she – and Coltonsville – will get.
