A rural farm in Kansas. A wealthy family with a dark secret. A missing young woman. That's the basis of a new book by a local author. She shares how a real-life small Kansas town — and her background as a criminal defense attorney — helped inspire her novel.
Then, a look at how police department throughout the country (including in KC) are using technology that mines cell phone data.
Plus: In anticipation of Central Standard's storytelling event on March 9, KCUR's Michael Byars tells a tale about the video game, Missile Command.
