Synopses & Reviews
Joyce Dugan had no idea that she was about to committ an act that would instigate a chain of murders. Darius Conn was the last guy you'd think would kill his wife. Claude Atkins had let Rose tease him long enough it was time she came across, or else. William Pierce knew how to stash a stiff, and to take care of any other bothersome details. John Dubinski didn't mind the hard travelling, so long as he could collect at the end of the line. Crime stories didn't interest Joyce Williams not until this one. The first killing was kind of hard but after that, no problem.
