James Ashton is a police detective from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. A traditional southern man complete with lack of social graces, he decides it’s time for a fresh start after his wife leaves him for his best friend. A game of darts chooses his fate while he is deciding on where to go. Before the ink dries on the divorce papers, he packs up and transfers into the police department in Landers, Wyoming.
After her sister commits suicide, Melody Quinn decides that she needs the quiet life after having served in the Marines where she did two tours in Afghanistan, trained with the FBI at Quanitico, Virginia, and worked with the Los Angeles Police Homicide Department. She knew she needed to get away for a while. Her captain agreed with her. After contacting his old Army buddy in Landers, Wyoming, he arranged the transfer for Melody effective immediately. Unbeknownst to her, life would not be as quiet as she hoped.
Not long after Ashton and Quinn arrive, murder rocks the sleepy little mountain town as bodies start appearing. As it turns out, the killer is right under their noses…or is he?
