Mystery | Thriller Crime
In Draper, Utah, a tight-knit Mormon community is thrown into upheaval
when their ward’s second counselor—one of the bishop’s right-hand men—is
found dead in an elaborately staged murder on church property. Carl Ashby
was known as a devout Mormon, a pillar of the community, and a loving
husband and father. Who would want him dead?
Linda Wallheim, the wife of the ward’s bishop, can’t rest as long as the ward is
suffering. She is particularly worried about Carl’s grieving family. But the
entire case is turned upside down by the autopsy report, which reveals Carl
Ashby was biologically female. In the Mormon church, where gender is
considered part of a person’s soul, some people regard transgenderism as one
of the worst possible transgressions of faith. Church officials seem to be more
upset by Carl’s gender than by his murder, and more concerned with hushing
up the story than solving the crime.
Linda realizes that if the police are to catch the killer, they are going to need
an ally on the inside—and she is the only one who can help. Carl was living a
life of secrecy for twenty years. What else was he hiding—and can Linda ferret
out the key to his death before the rumors tear her community apart?
