Overview

Mystery writer Dani Quinn hasn't been home for years. Once she put Casper, Wyoming, in her rearview mirror, she expected it to stay a distant childhood memory. But when her second marriage ends and a University teaching job in her hometown is offered, the single mom loads her three children in her Suburban and heads West. Casper, which many locals refer to as the Ghost Town, holds its own ghosts that emerge when Dani returns home. When human skeletal remains are unearthed during renovations on campus, the University tries to keep the story buried. But skeletons and secrets are too irresistible for any mystery writer to ignore, and Dani finds herself in the center of a decades-old mystery. She gets help from Chris Gorham (aka Gorm) her parents' hot new neighbor, who follows the Code of the West by offering to help the newly-divorced damsel in distress. But Gorm has hidden secrets that Dani unintentionally unburies along with a skeleton and a ring. Why the ring and the bones have been shelved by the University is just one of the many questions she has. The answers may cost not only her job, but also her life.
