A MISSING WAITRESS
A BLOOD-SPATTERED FARM
A HANDSOME STRANGER IN TOWN
When the lovely and mysterious waitress Annabelle disappears, the life of nice guy Gus Olson turns into an agonizing nightmare. His chickens get loose, and just like that, he’s in jail facing murder charges.
Gus is in a crisis of faith. Most of his friends have ditched him, and now he’s convinced that God has ditched him, too. And the Good Lord only knows if Gus will step into the courtroom with hopeless despair or prevailing faith.
The sharp defense attorney knows that nothing in a small town goes unnoticed. Someone saw something, but no one is talking.
No doubt about it, the folks of Whisper County believe Gus is indeed Annabelle’s ruthless killer, and they have decided over coffee that circumstantial evidence is enough for a conviction. Will Gus spend the rest of his life behind bars?
