Nick Storie is a homicide cop. People are dying from some exotic poison in food from Watson's Market. It appears to be the work of some kind of insane serial killer, but Nick doesn't think so. He believes it is directed at one or two of the victims, and the killer miscalculated.
Due to the nature of the poison, there is one very likely suspect - but that suspect was 150 miles away at all critical times.
Or was he? He is a genius, and could probably find a way, but why such a strange and complicated method, and why was any such thing even available?
He meets a woman where there is an immediate mutual attraction. That attraction could become a distraction.
