The thrilling start of a tail-wagging new series!
With her high-powered Wall Street job in the rearview mirror, thirty-four-year-old Mags Rogers arrives at her great-aunt Jeep Reed’s sprawling Nevada ranch to reassemble her life. In the passenger seat is Mags’s beloved wirehaired dachshund, Baxter. At Jeep’s side—to Baxter’s distress—is Jeep’s loyal German Shepherd mix, King. The growlings are mutual. Then someone pipe-bombs Red Rock Valley’s pumping station, endangering the water supply. Deputy Pete Meadows links the sabotage to a string of local murders. In her search for answers, Mags uncovers fascinating history about Jeep’s ranch, including an intriguing connection to Buffalo Bill. Drawn to each other, Mags and Pete join forces to solve various mysteries, as Baxter and King team up to protect their humans from a growing threat.
