Sun Valley sheriff Walt Fleming’s budding relationship with
local photographer Fiona Kenshaw hits a rough patch after she is responsible
for a heroic river rescue yet attempts to avoid the press. Despite her laudable
actions, she begs Walt to help keep her photo out of the local paper. Confused

while investigating the vandalism of a local home by a brown bear, and trying
to find sitters for his twin daughters. He’s dodging Fiona, chasing down

It’s at one charity benefit that a young woman he once

truth? Can Boldt trick the suspect out into the open? Walt and Boldt begin to
fit together the pieces of a terrifying puzzle—in the process putting
themselves and everyone around them in harm’s way.
