A WOMAN WITH A PASSION FOR POWER.
Kathy Marie Augustine was not out to make friends. In politics, she rose to the top by playing hardball-and pushing her way through the old boy's network of the Nevada legislature, rising to the rank of State Controller. When she died, only a few people shed tears-including the man who killed her.

A KILLER WITH A FOOLPROOF PLAN.
Chaz Higgs was a former body-builder turned intensive care nurse who saw wealthy, sexy Kathy Marie Augustine as his meal-ticket-until he couldn't stomach her domineering personality any longer. When Chaz decided he'd had enough, he chose a poison that would leave no evidence behind.

MURDER HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT.

King takes us into the extraordinary life and death of a famously ambitious woman politician, behind the scenes of the investigation that unearthed shocking secrets, and into the heart and mind of a man who nearly got away with the perfect crime.
