For the first time in the novel, Elizabeth McKelvey's murder is discussed in detail by the author. Since the first chapter we have known that Elizabeth died in a car crash, but very few facts had been listed.

Elizabeth was married to William McKelvey, but during their marriage she was having an affair with a man named Adam who was several years older than her. The two of them had met in secret for many years, and although everybody had seen them together, many believed them to be friends, since Elizabeth was married and Adam was so much older.
Adam was the last person Elizabeth had seen before she died. She was driving home from a christmas party of the Richardson's one winter night when she crashed into a large oak tree because of the ice on the road.

She was found dead immediately and when her body was pulled from the wreckage, Luke Richardson called Adam and Elizabeth's family.
