Sandra Nicholls Found Dead Summary
While blithely trespassing in a Massachusetts wetland, a plant thief stumbles across the corpse of a woman bludgeoned to death with a blunt instrument.

As a rookie prosecutor, there ar things he must prove: Motive, means and opportunity, all of which Peter has in spades. Or did he pay someone else to do it? It would certainly have been cheaper than letting the divorce go through ...
