Summary
Sunset Jones kills her husband, town constable Pete Jones because he raped her, but instead of going to jail, her mother-in-law, three-quarter owner of the mill, appoints her the new constable where she begins an investigation into the murder of a woman and an unborn baby in Depression-era East Texas
Summary
Sunset Jones has just killed her husband. Never mind that he was raping her. Pete Jones was constable of a small sawmill settlement called Camp Rapture, where no woman refuses her husband. So everyone is angrily surprised when, thanks to the amazing understanding of her mother-in-law -- who owns three-quarters of the mill -- Sunset becomes the new constable and begins to investigate the murders of a woman and unborn baby in which her late husband might be implicated. Yet, no one is more surprised than Sunset when the murders lead her -- through a labyrinth of greed, corruption, and unspeakable malice -- not only to the conclusion of the case, but to a well of inner strength she never knew she had
