The writer, Lawrence Castle, sat impatiently waiting in his son's legal office to keep a luncheon appointment. The bored author flipped through a box of depositions earmarked for storage. Always looking for a plot for his next book, Castle was fascinated by the depositions he read: Robert Garrity, a respected citizen and community leader had been recently indicted for tax fraud and killed in a one-car accident just before the trial.

With more than a million dollars of life insurance in question, his son's law firm was hired to prove the death was a suicide. However, the case was settled out-of-court. What piqued Castle's detective mind was the fact that Garrity had been wearing a three-piece suit and house slippers at the time of his death. Curious, he thought.

As he read more, Castle discovered parallels between his life and Garrity. Fascinated by the similarities, Castle decides to travel to Garrity's home town in search of a story for his next novel. His arrival and subsequent investigation opens old scars that residents and family members do not want questioned. Depositions reveals a terrible truth buried eight years earlier and uncovered through the tenacity and persistence of this snoopy author.
