"Bowen effectively captures his Midwestern locale and takes readers on a fast-paced, exciting ride."—Publishers Weekly
Vance Hayes died while joyriding on a snowmobile late one night near the Wisconsin Dells. The cold-hearted, hard-headed lawyer goes unmourned by clients, colleagues, or anyone else—including his reluctant eulogist, fellow attorney Rep Pennyworth.
In fact, interest in Hayes' death is merely perfunctory until it intersects with the perils facing Vietnamese-American court reporter Sue Key, who is tied to Milwaukee's Hmong community. Could it be that Hayes died not because of any of the rotten and vicious things he did, but because of one decent, human endeavor?
The situation is further complicated by deer season when for several weeks in the fall, "up north" is home to 700,000 people carrying loaded firearms. Can Rep and his shrewd wife Melissa find in them the key to solving the puzzle of Vance Hayes' death?
