Standing there pale and wide-eyed, sheMoreMaam, were conducting a police inquiry and would like to ask you a few questions if you dont mind. Gary thought Maam seemed an oddly inappropriate form of address for this recently pubescent young girl. Standing there pale and wide-eyed, she looked more like a waif than a woman. Yet addressing her as Miss would have been even less suitable. After all, she was cradling a baby. Gary Ambrose is a rookie police office in the community of Belvista, and hes struggling to get along with his new partner, Dan. Whats worse, theyve found the first murder anyone can think of in a long time. At first glance, there are no witnesses, no motives, and no evidence. All Gary and Dan can do is continue to question the neighbors and try to find some sort of trail. Elizabeth Webster is a young single mother who just found out that her landlord has been murdered. Sensing her distress, her mother convinces her niece, Maureen, to visit. But Maureen and Elizabeth havent been very close since Maureens baby was kidnapped almost a year before. And two officers wont stop pestering her about Old Will Brounts death. As Gary tries desperately to find a lead and prove himself as an officer, the details of Old Will Brounts character start to unravel. Elizabeth reveals the ugly truth about her family to her cousin, and another body is found dead. Follow the twisted maze of lies and deceit as Officer Ambrose investigates the case of The Poison Pit.
