|Plot Summary of Murder, He Guessed|
Sheriff Stewart calls CD at 3:00 AM because a woman claims to have witnessed a murder - again. She is a very powerful political mover and shaker, so Len can't tell her she's bonkers. CD determines that it was some kind of weird stage show - but why?
Then the woman actually is murdered. Her husband is in Tallahassee at the time, so he can't be the killer, unless he's found a way to get the length of the state, commit a murder, and return in one night.
CD investigates and finds she was into some crazy scheme to launder money stolen from the taxpayers through NASA contracts. It seems the group had put all the money in one account, then she stole the account. Is it possible some really BIG politicians are involved?
The killer is caught, and things are moving along - then there is another murder. A woman who was part of the scheme - except tests show she wasn't the victim.
