FOUR PEOPLE GATHERED AT OLD JOHN MADAIR'S SICKBED AND ALL OF THEM WISHED HIM DEAD. ONE, HOWEVER, WAS TOO IMPATIENT TO WAIT. JOHN MADAIR DIED - OF CYANIDE POISONING.

One of the four had set Anne up for a murder charge. Now it was up to her to find her enemy - before he killed again to preserve the secret of his first crime.
