Especially when Miguel and Helen prepare the pregnant fiancée of Kingman “King” Oden for her nuptials. When King tries to throw his weight around the shop, Miguel delivers a vicious dressing down — along with a killer threat. Which is why Miguel is named the prime suspect when King’s body is found drowned in a pool at his own wedding. Helen knows her boss might have a temper, but murder? That’s just not his style.
