Murder mystery. First in the Nick Storie series. People are dying of a strange exotic poison. Their only connection seems to be Watson's Market. Nick is called in, as is the entire Naples South Station Violent Crimes Div.
Is it a serial killer, or something more sinister? Was one or more the direct target? The gay men? The professor's wife and her lover? The cold bank employee? The Malaysian counter clerk? And why such a complicated scheme to kill? How did the killer know his victim(s) would even get the poison - if, indeed, it wasn't a random serial killing spree?
