Now Joe Gunther and his Vermont Bureau of Investigation team has discovered that Nathan Lyon was actually Nick Bianchi, and his money came from Mafia-tainted sources. Now his family seems to be dying and their deaths are now revealed to be murders. Having betrayed many, it's no surprise that Nathan Lyon was a marked man. But Gunther has to figure out who, among the many, killed him, and stop them before their killing spree claims another.
