When he learns a bullet was meant for his wife, children's author Lyon Wentworth investigates an assassination, in this irresistible political thriller.

On a sunny afternoon in Murphysville, Connecticut, the village green of the charming suburb is filled with voters who have come for a glimpse of Randolph Llewyn. Everyone's attention is locked on the stage as state senator Bea Wentworth introduces the candidate for governor - everyone, that is, but Bea's husband, Lyon, who is daydreaming of a title for his latest children's book. Lyon snaps back to attention, however, when a sniper's bullet cuts Randolph down as he takes the stage. A second bullet misses, but the damage is done. As the crowd erupts in panic, Lyon spots the assassin fleeing on a motorcycle.
