When a young mother is murdered in the isolated ranching town of Lost Trail, Montana, the father of her child is the first suspect.

In the isolated ranching community of Lost Trails, Montana, Lacy Stillman, a rich elderly rancher, has died of a heart attack in her own bed. What could be more normal than that?
