Rich, beautiful, deadly...
Billionairess Susan Cummings was very rich, even by the exalted standards of Virginia horse country. Shy and single, she used just two rooms of her huge mansion and slept with a .357 Magnum under her pillow. Some people called her haughty. Others said she was strangely obsessive, eccentric, and emotionless, with a strong distrust of people.

But police, answering a mysterious 911 call, saw him only as a bullet-riddled corpse.
