Water Can Keep You Alive …

A man in a wheelchair goes missing in rough country in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming. Reporter and amateur sleuth Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher and KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik immediately join the search organized by local rancher Tom Burrell. But soon they’re on a search of a different kind – a search for the truth.

It takes them deep into the intricacies of the community served by the Red Sail Ditch – the irrigation system that could make a ranch viable or worthless. They find rivalries, cooperation, antagonisms, inter-dependencies, and motives for murder.

... Or Get You Killed.

Everything can change … except murder.

In the television production world, a body brace is used to shift the weight of the camera to the operator's shoulder. This allows for smoother shots and reduces stress and tiredness. And, at the small-town Wyoming TV station KWMT, cameras are older and bulkier than those used in network news-gathering. Almost as old as some of the equipment used in a historical re-creation that draws Elizabeth and friends into another investigation. When there’s rumbling underfoot, a body brace helps keep what’s important in focus.

Body Brace, Book 10 of the Caught Dead in Wyoming series, is a smart, surprising, fast-paced cozy mystery with humor. If you like quirky characters, hints of romance and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s page-turner.
