Item description for A Capital Offense by Gary Parker...

At Jack's funeral Connie Brandon gazed at the crowd of mourners. She recognized all of them, good people, people who attended church with them, who had shopped at Jack's store, who had made their lives peaceful and happy in this gentle community. Was it possible that someone here would commit-murder? Feisty red-headed Connie Brandon has the world by the tail. She's married to a wonderful man, has two beautiful children, and a law degree nearly in hand. But she is worried. Her husband Jack has recently taken a stand against a riverboat casino coming into this small Missouri town - and that stand is not popular in some quarters. Many people have begun to avoid the Brandons and there have been threatening phone calls late at night. Then Jack's body is found in the river, and Connie finds herself in a desperate search for the truth behind his death. Though the police say the evidence points to suicide, Connie knows her husband could never have killed himself Convinced that the gambling interests are behind his death, she searches for answers. This search brings her to information that may rock the foundation over life - and to a secret that could reverberate all the way up to the steps of the state capitol. Connie must risk everything - her reputation, her children, her life, even her faith - to find the truth before it's too late. A CAPITAL OFFENSE is a suspenseful murder mystery that explores one woman's journey through grief and doubt into a faith that overcomes.

Publishers Description
Life smiles on Connie Brandon: law degree nearly in hand, a loving husband and two wonderful kids, a vibrant faith in God in a quiet Missouri town.

But her quiet family life is rocked when her husband, Jack, turns up dead in the Missouri River -- a suicide, police say -- and then another woman claims to have been his mistress.

Although grief-stricken, Connie's sharp legal mind locks on to the belief that her husband was murdered for his staunch opposition to riverboat gambling in the Missouri capital of Jefferson City. Yet as she searches for the truth, secrets about Jack emerge -- secrets of a past cloaked in riddles and danger; secrets that threaten her faith and her life unless she can piece it all together in time.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Capital Offense?

A widow copes with late husband's secrets  Jun 2, 1998
Faith in Jesus enables a widow to fight gambling interests and the destruction of her husband's reputation in the mystery-thriller, A Capital Offense by Gary Parker. While not particularly profound, this novel has plot twists galore and a plucky heroine who demonstrates that real Christians are not wimps. It also affirms the truth that God is with us even in our greatest sorrows.
