Louis Deem has perfected the art of ridding himself of unwanted wives. His first fell through the ice and drowned. His second was found crushed under his truck in a tragic accident. His third was found with a broken neck. The evidence is circumstantial, but the authorities are desperate to put Deem behind bars. And then the jury returns a verdict of not guilty. Only a month later, a mother and her boy are gunned down. And this time, Kate Shugak is determined that Deem will be punished, whatever the cost...

New author for me. Writes a lot like craig Johnson and c.j.box. Interesting twists but still a good read.

Wealthy Louis Deem has gotten away with murder, often of beautiful young women he marries, one time too many, and Jim and Kate are sure they can nail him this time. One problem is that the witness is Kate's teenage ward, a boy she hopes to adopt. Unfortunately, she and Jim suspect Deem knows the boy saw him, putting the kid's life in danger. An evangelical family's moved to town, with 21 or more kids, (a new baby's due any minute), everyone of legal age, and maybe some under age, packing a rifle. The boys wear biblical long hair, the girls long dresses, sunbonnets, and braids. The family's bulldozer makes a road next to a creek suspected of having an oil seep, and they squat on public land, building cabins, settling in for winter. Deem in record time gets himself engaged to the beautiful oldest daughter. What's in it for him? The tiny town is split over the family, which more than doubles the population, and can be friendly when they want. Why do the family want to stay? Tensions escalate, until finally the "fiancee" and her next sister decide to make a run for it, and everything breaks loose.

Pretty good story, but disturbing! It's not very often you root for the murder to happen. But happen it does! But there are loose ends, which are resolved in a later book. Good read.
