In Volume III of the Rich Coleman Novels, Rich’s son Ryan finally graduates from law school and is anxious to start practicing law. While in law school he met and fell in love with Amanda, a classmate who doesn’t want to practice law but has her sights set on becoming a literary agent. When Ryan hears of this, he remembers that his father had written a book about the murder of Martha Collins, his mother's aunt. He tells Amanda about the book, and she is ecstatic with the prospect of it being her first placement.

During all this Matt, although convinced he’ll never fall in love again after his first wife, Lynn, is murdered, strikes up a relationship with an escort named Candy. The relationship starts off as more of a friendship than anything but just when it seems to be blossoming into a love affair, Candy is kidnaped, and Matt wonders if his second love will suffer the same fate as Lynn,
