Journalist Lola Wicks discovers a story she canât resist . . . but it could be her last
When former foreign correspondent Lola Wicks heads to Wyoming for a Yellowstone vacation, she comes across a story that hits close to her past. One Wyoming soldier returning from Afghanistan commits suicide, two others spark a near-fatal brawl, and a woman is terrorized. Lola, accompanied by her young daughter, senses a story about whatever happened on the far side of the world that these troops have so disastrously brought home. But she soon realizes that getting the story must take second place to getting herselfâand her little girlâout of Wyoming alive.
"A gutsy series."âThe New York Times
"A gut-wrenching mystery/thriller that explores prejudice and the incredible stress on soldiers in a seemingly unending war with no clear goals."âKirkus Reviews

She creates characters with real depth and places them in a story that is so hard-hitting and believable, it's easy to imagine it being in tomorrow's headlines."âJ.J. Hensley, award-winning author ofÂ ResolveÂ andÂ Measure Twice
