    With the smell of burning wood and bricks lingering in the cool morning breeze, Johnnie Wise left New Orleans while her home was still smoldering. She had just been acquitted of murdering Sharon Trudeau, one of her former stocker brokers who had stolen a substantial amount of her nest egg. Broke with nothing but the clothes on her back and the shoes on her feet, Johnnie heads to East St. Louis to live with her father.

    Throughly Entertaining!

    After three long weeks of wondering if the police are going to figure out what really happened in her hotel room, Johnnie leaves Jackson, Mississippi, without being questioned.
