Gentle children's books illustrator Austin Marr (23) is stabbed to death in strict federal judge Pauline Fitwilliam's guest house. Austin was the lover of her contrary youngest daughter, Abigail 'Abby', who is missing and was recently released from drug rehabilitation. Pauline points to the White Supremacist gang of Raymond Tubbs, whom she put in jail and threatened her and her family, to which end he may use coke dealer Howard 'Howie' Dressler. Patrick mistrusts the estate security and makes Abby's sister Sophie confess a secret: the lovers just had their first row, and indeed her fingerprints are on the knife. Patrick deducts mundane 'best friend' Danielle stole Abby's credit card. Pauline's ma Ethel Sebring is being buried after a lingering disease, treated by Dr. Saban. Patrick ties everything together and sets an unsavory trap. Written by KGF Vissers
