Book Description

A true crime suspense thriller of the horrific, excruciating death and murder of a millionaire, and haunting occurrences that actually happened. The true crime story is depicted the way it really happened and contains photos, testimony, depositions and recollections of real-life people. This true story contains sexual abuse, death, embezzlement, poison, premonitions, and spine-tingling accounts of unexplained phenomena that may seem like the stuff of soap operas.  However, these dastardly deeds and haunting occurrences actually happened.

A Texas Millionaire rancher discovers his wife and bookkeeper have stolen thousands of dollars from him. He demands the money back, but suddenly gets deathly ill after eating lunch with his wife and bookkeeper. He dies in the hospital from a mysterious and unknown illness that mystifies doctors. An anonymous caller notifies the police of arsenic poisoning.

The millionaire's ex-wife and mother of his only children becomes a sleuth to help solve his murder. A bottle of arsenic is found in a storage locker. Can the ex-wife now trace this poison back to the murderer?
