All evidence for the murder points to Gordon Sims, the chief gardener. His fingerprints are on the murder weapon, and witnesses saw him arguing with the curator shortly before her death.With the help of Special Agent Jack Turner, her reluctant sidekick and new flame, Casey works to clear Gordon’s name.
