Barbara Stager appeared to be a devoted mother, loving wife and dedicated church leader. When she "accidentally" shot her husband, a popular high school coach, the police were inclined to believe her until they found out that ten years earlier her first husband had died in a similar way. Detective Rick Buchanan's relentless investigations into Stager's life revealed a stunning vortex of compulsive lying, obsessive spending and sexual promiscuity.

"Superb, top-flight...a suspenseful saga of murder, sex and subterfuge and a long hard search for justice." -- Bookpage

If your favorite neighbor's husband suddenly died from an "accidental" shot to his head would you believe she did it? Especially if she was a devoted mother, loving wife, and dedicated church leader? What if you found out that she'd had a husband before this one and by chance he died of the same "accident"? Would you believe her now? Detective Rick Buchanan is investigating Barbara Stager's life and has revealed a spiders web of lust and lies. A true story of a woman's image undone by: herself.
