One night Soames is shot to death after he had been caught lurking outside the windows of Maybelle's bordello. While Detective Tibbs agrees with the district attorney that Maybelle is the prime suspect, Chief Gillespie believes a closer look should be taken at the reverend's wife, Beverly Soames. During the course of Chief Gillespie's and Detective Tibbs investigation, they happen to come across a second murder which has to be solved. Written by mts77
