Sometimes the truth hides where no one expects to find it. Joanne Weeks knows Baxter Jackson killed Linda his second wife and Joanne s best friend six years ago. But Baxter, a church elder and beloved member of the town, walks the streets a free man. The police tell Joanne to leave well enough alone, but she is determined to bring him down. Using her skills as a professional skip tracer, she sets out to locate the only person who may be able to put Baxter behind bars.
