As a Texas Ranger, Roy Adcock outwitted plenty of dangerous characters. But now the retired Ranger has been shot dead - with his wife's gun. The case hits close to home for China, since Dolores Adcock had been at the herb shop just that morning. But what hits even closer to home is when China's longtime boyfriend starts behaving strangely after hearing the news - and China overhears a secret phone conversation between him and another woman. Now, as clues mount and accusations fly, China must question both the Adcock marriage and her own relationship - and avoid getting caught in a deadly maze of suspicion and betrayal.
