Suspense | Mystery
When a county employee is found shot to death in sun
drenched daylight while sitting in his county road grader,
Undersheriff Bill Gastner is faced with puzzling questions.
The simplest explanationâ€”that an errant bullet from a
careless target shooter's rifle blew out Larry Zipoli's
brainsâ€”is soon discarded as inconsistencies surface. The
fatal bullet shows no rifling marks, and investigation
reveals that the shooter walked directly toward the road
grader, in full view of the victimâ€”who did nothing to defend
In addition to the demands of the investigation, Gastner
learns that Sheriff Eduardo Salcido has hired a new deputy
without discussing the matter with his undersheriff. And
Gastner learns that the new hire is destined to be the first
female road patrol deputy in the history of Posadas County.
Thus begins Gastner's relationship with Estelle Reyes, whose
shrewd observations shed important light on a crime that
rattles all kinds of skeletons lurking in Posadas County
