Jack Beckett returns in the third book of a gripping series. Beckett is passing through Casper and stops to do a friend a favor, only to find himself in the middle of a murder for hire crime spree that has claimed the lives of two well-known businessmen. When he teams up with Deputy Janie Sherman, strange things begin to happen. The Chief Deputy Sherriff commits suicide in his office; Deputy Janie Sherman’s sister is kidnapped; a wealthy land owner is forced to fly above Casper and helplessly watch the pilot parachute out, leaving him to die in a fiery crash. When Beckett tracks down the killer, he must meet him unarmed in the historic Medicine Bow hotel. If Beckett fails to talk him into surrendering, he won’t get a second chance.
