Shay Billings is pleasantly surprised at discovering a new bridge over the river, as it cuts several miles from his trip into town. Ambushed and left for dead, he has even more cause to be grateful when the bridge-builder saves his life. Shay’s savior turns out to be a mysterious young woman with extraordinary skills. More importantly, she’s a strong ally when he and a few other men are forced to defend themselves and their ranches against a power hungry rich man. Marvin Hammel seems determined to own everything in their small valley, his intention to gobble up not only their homes and their livelihoods, but the water that flows through the land.
January Schutt just wants to be left alone to hide her scars. She’s rebuilt the bridge that crosses the river onto her property, and lives like a hermit in a rundown old barn. All that changes when she takes in a wounded Shay Billings. Now she’s placed in the middle of a war over water rights. But has she picked the winning side?
Shay Billings and January Schutt have been married four months when he’s summoned by the local bank president to a meeting. With the final payment due on his land, Shay rides to town for the meeting, then is murdered on the way home…
The bank president declares the loan in arrears and informs January the bank is taking everything except the clothes on her back. Devastated by Shay’s death, January knows skullduggery is afoot and vows to fight back. Worse, it seems she’ll have to go after Shay’s murderer herself as the local sheriff lacks the backbone. Everything ties together, to her mind. The foreclosure nothing more than downright theft, the murder an act of revenge by the widow of Shay’s old enemy. But January has friends, too, especially in Ford Tervo, a deputy U.S. marshal who had been Shay’s friend.
Now, vowing her own revenge, the final showdown becomes two widows duking it out.
The client? None other than Sepp Amsel, a fabulously successful gambling hall and saloon-keeper entrepreneur, who is about to become the bridegroom in the most public wedding ever to take place in wild and woolly Spokane, Washington.
With funds running a little short at the Doyle & Howe Detective Agency, China can’t resist getting involved, especially since a friend has recommended her services to Amsel. However, the clock is ticking. The ransom is due on Wednesday and it’s already Monday. China’s investigation begins with the closest thing to a witness she has, the prospective bride. With no good answers to her questions, she, too, starts to wonder if Sepp Amsel’s mail-order bride is not quite what she seems.
It isn’t long until murder becomes part of the equation. First a bellhop, then a tailor. Who will be next? China had better find out soon, before she, too, becomes targeted for murder.

But Yester Noonan, four years older than Ketta, is fond of his half-sister, even if she is part Chinese, and when his mother begs him to rescue her, he rides out on this quest.
Accompanied by his Metis friend, Nat Fontaine, the two sixteen-year-olds take on a man's role. As for Ketta? She's not too shabby either, when it comes to being tough.

Paramedic and Afghanistan veteran Frankie McGill and resident deputy Gabe Zantos are caught up in a case of arson and murder. A house at the end of a country road has stood vacant for years, its occupants mice and the stray raccoon or two.
When the derelict house catches fire, the Hawkesford Fire Department responds because of the danger to the dry wheat fields surrounding it. But then two bodies are found in the ashes, along with evidence of a meth cooking operation. Gabe suspects gang rivalry.
Soon, an experienced welder dies in what appears at first to be a horrific accident at his lonely farm. A second house burns, and Frankie barely saves the elderly occupant. Then there's the mysterious 9-1-1 call that cries for help at an isolated ranch. There’s one thing ties these events together…

But what is this young woman and her son doing on the train? And why is she as hell bent for revenge as Biden himself?
