Well-groomed Gordon Hodge is found by joggers, robbed and killed in the Deerfield woods. He was the Sinner Saints motor-biker gang's full-time lawyer, who masterly prevented their contraband and other crimes leading to convictions. The team finds he cheated inscrutable gang leader Vaughn McBride with his biker lover, Constance. His wife Nina Hodge knew, but chose to ignore his infidelity to avoid further embarrassment, especially their gentle adolescent son Lucas. Furthermore Felicia Gutherie, whose brother was killed by the gang, wanted revenge. Jane unravels the truth and sees to justice for as many as possible. Written by KGF Vissers
