Inhaltsangabe: Montezuma County Sheriff's detective, Jude Devine doesn't face too many challenges based in remote Paradox Valley, where most of the crime involves hiker assaults, campsite thefts, and cattle rustling. However, when the body of local teenager, Darlene Huntsberger shows up with a stake through her heart and missing her tongue, Jude finds herself leading an investigation no one wants to touch. Darlene was a member of a Utah polygamist cult with powerful allies; a cult that silences women who try to leave. As Jude uncovers the truth about Darlene, and tries to save a young girl from being forced into a marriage, she must decide how much she is willing to risk to see justice done. Further complicating her choices is her torrid entanglement with the golden girl of Southwestern forensic pathology, Dr. Mercy Westmoreland.

Praise for Rose Beecham's work:
"Amusing and thought provoking writing…more than enough to keep turning the pages. Beecham is an entertaining writer with a gift for blunt, comic description, dialogue and commentary. … Not surprisingly, Beecham writes in other genres besides the mystery, as her characters seem fully capable of walking away from the particulars of whodunit and engaging the reader in other aspects of their lives." Lambda Book Report
"When Jennifer Fulton writes mysteries, she writes them as Rose Beecham. And since Jennifer Fulton is a very fine writer, you might expect that Rose Beecham is a fine writer too. You're right… Beecham creates believable characters in compelling situations, with enough humor to provide effective counterpoint to the work of detecting." Bay Area Reporter
"A well-written blend of subplots and well developed characters… An intriguing mystery which introduces a competent and complex cop to the ever-growing lesbian detective genre." Washington Blade
