      It began with an armored car robbery gone terribly awry leaving two people dead including one member of the gang believed responsible for the crime. Charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery is the leader of the Reformed Church of the Divine Christ, 45 year old Walter Bradshaw. Bradshaw leads an arch conservative, anti-government group of Mormon polygamists who were once a part of Warren Jeffs's Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Bradshaw is captured after a high-speed chase shortly after the armored car robbery. He currently waits in a cell at the Utah State Prison where he is being held as a parole violator, pending trial for the armored car fiasco. The rest of the Bradshaw gang remains at large. Two days before Bradshaw's preliminary hearing, Arnold Ginsberg, one of two witnesses to the armored car robbery, is found murdered. He has been stabbed and bludgeoned to death in a parking garage in downtown Salt Lake City. On the same evening, the second witness, 24-year old University of Utah student Robin Joiner narrowly escapes being kidnapped as she walks across campus to her car. The near miss frightens Joiner and she immediately goes into hiding. The case draws Sam Kincaid and Kate McConnell together again, this time pitting their collective skills against a ruthless gang bent on eliminating the only remaining witness to the armored car robbery. For Sam and Kate, the challenge lies not only in solving the murder of Arnold Ginsberg, but also in finding Robin Joiner.
