About the Book
Woodrow Hand and his Buddy Deadeye Dan, who runs a gas station and motel, try to do the right thing by helping out a California redhead passing through the Oregon Badlands. When she turns up an obvious suicide, they rally to her side. But nothing turns out like it's supposed to. She disappears, and when Sheriff Berry tries to figure out how he can have a missing corpse on his beat, he stumbles into more than he bargained for. Woody and Dan are in the thick of it and before they can make sense of their predicament, they're eating mush at the Harney County jailhouse. Now nobody's sure what's a suicide, a kidnap, a runaway or murder. That is, not until bodies start showing up. Maybe the answer to the whole mystery is a long forgotten cold case and a secret that's been kept for years. Right under the Sheriff's nose...
