When high school teacher Sara Hansen witnesses a drive-by shooting, the Detroit police advise her to leave town for awhile. She goes to her brother’s Sugar Island home off Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, but finds no refuge.
She’s dropped by a rifle shot as she enjoys a snowy morning stroll. Her brother and sister-in-law are out of town at the time.
Daniel Leeds, a former Detroit homicide detective who has resigned in disillusionment, hears the shot from his cabin on the next property and finds Sara bleeding in the snow. He takes her home and cares for her until help arrives. He follows the ambulance to the hospital where he keeps vigil.
An idealistic educator and a dispirited ex-law enforcement officer. Can he keep her safe while solving the mystery? Can she make him see she’s a grown woman and can take care of herself? Come to the snowy Upper Peninsula with us and watch it all unfold.
