Reaction Shot (Caught Dead in Wyoming, Book 9)

Patricia McLinn

Romance / Mystery

In the rough country of Wyoming, some cattle rustlers still get a death sentence.Official consumer advocate and unofficial investigative reporter Elizabeth Margaret Danniher, her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik, rancher Tom Burrell, and their supporting staff of idiosyncratic sleuths take on another mystery. A ranch foreman is found dead — and, for most in Cottonwood County, the reaction is ... good riddance. Long considered guilty of a heinous crime, the foreman was represented then by a slick attorney, now owner of Lukasik Ranch — once Mike's family land. Suspects include the hot-headed Hiram Poppinger, fellow grazing association ranchers — and Tom. This time, both Tom and Elizabeth are ordered by Tom's daughter to find the truth. The investigation puts Elizabeth in close quarters with Mike and Tom — sometimes all three together — and she realizes this love triangle also warrants a soul-search for deeper meaning....
