Michigan State Senator, Simon Young, had been found brutally mutilated in his office and no one had seen a thing, until the senator's wife appeared at the murder scene covered in blood, denying her guilt. Was it all a lie or were there other forces at work? The deeper Sophie digs, the more the facts unravel into the realm of the improbable. Can she solve the puzzle before it's too late?
