Just before Christmas in 2007 Jocelyn Earnest was found with a bullet in her head, a gun and a note lying near her body.
When a wife is found dead in the home investigators begin eliminating suspects, starting with the husband. What looked like a suicide on the surface quickly took a turn towards a homicide investigation as clues revealed details of contentious divorce proceedings, a multi million dollar second home in the process of being built, and Wesley Earnest’s fingerprints on the typed suicide note.
UNDER COVER OF THE NIGHT takes place in Forest, Virginia in Bedford County at the scenic foothills of the Appalachians where Wesley Earnest was a well-respected member of the small community, at least that’s how he portrayed himself.
Wesley Earnest was a respected high school administrator, poised to restart his life in a new community. Parents entrusted their children to his care and believed he was above reproach. But an investigation into the life the couple once shared would reveal adultery, troubled finances and shattered dreams–enough that one man with murder on his mind would travel hundreds of miles…UNDER COVER OF THE NIGHT.
