Surprisingly, her aunt is named as a prime suspect, compelling Jenessa to find the real killer in order to keep her favorite relative from going to prison. As she doggedly follows the growing trail of clues, Jenessa’s investigation takes a dangerous turn and puts her life in peril. With time running out, can Detective Baxter capture the murderer and save the woman he loves? Or will she have to save herself?

The Uncorking a Murder podcast took the nation by storm. Farrah Graham, the creator and host, struck a nerve with listeners through a ten-episode serial that combined investigative journalism, old fashioned radio drama, and compelling storytelling.

While Farrah and her partner Melody struggle to agree on a topic for the second season of the podcast, their intern takes a call from a retired detective in Ft. Lauderdale pitching his request to focus on a case he was involved with five years earlier.

Interested to hear why a retired detective is driven to have a conviction overturned, Farrah follows her curiosity down to Ft. Lauderdale where she uncovers a conspiracy involving a narcissistic CEO fueled by greed, a US Senator, and a wrongly imprisoned man; but will she live long enough to uncork the story?
