Wanted for Murder: The Marshal's Wife Marshal Lane Morgan is an honorable man who isn't about to let anyone dodge the law-not even the son of Paul Webley, the most crooked figure in Skylar, Colorado. Lane is all set to testify against Webley's boy-until Webley himself starts digging into Lane's wife's past and turns up one helluva dirty secret. No sooner does Lane receive a threat of blackmail than the dead body of a grifter is found-leaving the marshal's wife as the number one suspect. Now, with little more than his instincts to go on, Lane must risk his livelihood, his values, and his own freedom to track down the real killer-and save his wife from a fate worse than death...
