About this audiobook

A Rodeo Producer, Dead in the Bull Pen. Accident or Murder?

Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher, until recently a top-flight national TV journalist, is regaining her footing after a dizzying demotion to tiny—and entirely foreign to her—Sherman, Wyoming. But her equilibrium faces a major challenge.

The apparently accidental death — under the hooves of bucking bulls — of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman's annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik. Not only is it a major story about the region's biggest event, but it's being outrageously mishandled by the station's egocentric anchor.

As Elizabeth and Mike dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on suspects — and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has divided loyalties, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom show an interest in her ... they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of this geometry is starting to get under her skin.

... From the tip of the rodeo queen's tiara, to "agricultural byproducts" ground into the arena dust, TV reporter Elizabeth Danniher receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.
