Former CIA operative Phoenix Smith goes with Acting Sheriff Annalynn Keyser to search for a missing farmer. They find him dead with a rifle at his side and a broken antler in his back. The women suspect a human framed a deer.
Phoenix hunts for the deadly deer as an excuse to investigate the widow‚ a hostile neighbor‚ an ecoterrorist‚ and other suspects. She gains their confidence and picks their locks. She also protects the most vulnerable from both the killer and the law. Rule-bound Annalynn leads the official investigation‚ stretching the law and her ethics to convert Phoenix’s illegally obtained leads into court-admissible evidence.
As in Show Me the Murder‚ the friends rely on trust‚ love‚ and laughter to survive crimes and crises.
