Publisher's Summary

Things aren’t always as bad as they seem. Sometimes, they’re a lot worse.

Kate Fox has just defeated her ex-husband in the race for Grand County sheriff, but there’s no time for celebration. Instead, she’s called to the railroad tracks just outside of town. The train engineer is dead. His conductor is in shock. And Kate’s gut is telling her this is much more than just a horrific accident.

The victim's widow is behaving oddly. The neighbor’s story doesn’t add up. The victim had recently made several enemies - and they all have motive for murder.

As Kate works to solve the case, she knows she has to trust her instincts - even if that means disagreeing with State Patrol Officer Trey Ridnour. With the stakes high and the whole town watching, Kate uncovers a plot darker than she ever imagined. The clock is ticking, and Kate knows it’s up to her to bring the killer to justice...before tragedy strikes again.

"[P]ushes her franchise across the cold prairie landscape as steadily and professionally as a BNSF freight train, leaving readers eager for the next stop." (Kirkus Reviews)

Sheriff Kate Fox is great!

The more Kate Fox novels I listen to, the more vested I am in the story arc. She's not "Walker, Texas Ranger", but she's determined smart and resourceful. Who needs martial arts skills, when your related to most of your county?

Good series

Follows book one well with the ongoing story of a resilient Kate Fox. I love the storyline and descriptions of the rural life of a Midwestern Sheriff.

Enjoyable listen.

I’m quite enjoying this serious. The American narrator isn’t as annoying to listen to as some of them can be.
The story is good too.

The lead character has improved

This book was better than the 1st in the series largely because the lead character did not complain as much.
