in Natchez, Mississippi, to unmask a killer. A local divorce attorney has
a cluster of clients whose spouses have all died under mysterious

I found this book on Scribd.
This was a great listen. It reminded me a little of that long ago movie

divorce would cost them millions. When Alex discovers a doctor could be the
next victim she enlists his help but first she has to convince him that his
wife is cheating and that his life is in danger.

Northern life. It almost makes me want a sweet tea...almost (way too sweet for
