Abstract:

In Draper, Utah, a tight-knit Mormon community is thrown into upheaval when their ward's second counselor -- one of the bishop's right-hand men -- is found dead in an elaborately staged murder on church property. Carl Ashby was known as a devout Mormon, a pillar of the community, and a loving husband and father. Who would want him dead? Linda Wallheim, the wife of the ward's bishop, can't rest as long as the ward is suffering. She is particularly worried about Carl's grieving family. But the entire case is turned upside down by the autopsy report, which reveals Carl Ashby was a biological female. In the Mormon church, where gender is considered part of a person's soul, some people regard transgenderism as one of the worst possible transgressions of faith. Church officials seem to be more upset by Carl's gender than by his murder, and more concerned with hushing up the story than solving the crime. Linda realizes that if the police are to catch the killer, they are going to need an ally on the inside -- and she is the only one who can help. Carl was living a life of secrecy for twenty years. What else was he hiding -- and can Linda ferret out the key to his death before the rumors tear her community apart?
