BLAKE'S DEAD. HIS WIFE KILLED HIM. THE QUESTION IS: WHICH ONE?
The only thing the three women had in common was their husband.
And, as of this morning, that they're each accused of his murder.
Blake Nelson moved onto a hidden stretch of land - a raw paradise in the wilds of Utah - where he lived with his three wives:
Rachel, the chief wife, obedient and doting to a fault.
Tina, the other wife, who is everything Rachel isn't.
And Emily, the youngest wife, who knows little else.
When their husband is found dead under the desert sun, the questions pile up.
But none of the widows know who would want to kill a good man like Blake.
Or, at least, that's what they'll tell the police...
