A long forgotten corpse...
The mummified body, discovered in a National Forest; brings FBI forensic specialist David Harrison to remote Riverview, Colorado where he meets Megan and Kam, two women he finds difficult to keep up with.
Bullets and a blizzard force Kam and David to an abandoned cabin where they discover evidence about murder, extortion and blackmail from the 1930’s. They also discover a shared heritage that becomes a private joke between them as they grow closer.
Mysteries and romance...
Together they discover the connections of the ancient crime to crimes of the not so distant past and the present. Kam and David experience danger and pain, and finally a murder attempt against Kam. Can David save her before it’s too late? Will the shared danger help them to build a lasting relationship, or will the secrets between them keep them apart?
This book, like the first Riverview mystery, Desperate Endurance, shows the values and cohesiveness of small town and rural America. People are willing to help each other and work to keep each other safe in a very rugged and unforgiving land.
