Former Cobb County Georgia Detective Russell Baker has come a long way since the death of his wife, Sarah. But his life is far from perfect. He left behind his home and a job he loved and moved to Bozeman, Montana-the place he first met Sarah- and became a part-time fly fishing guide.
He meets the beautiful Nancy Freeman, but she has her own bad memories to overcome. He has a short fling with the older Miriam Alexander but she moves back to Salt Lake. Now: its just him, an empty house and his drift boat and an occasional job as a fishing guide with some clients. Russ has money in the bank but he has an empty heart.
When his friend Madison County Sherrif Barry Steinbrenner is shot and left for dead beside a county road the night before Thanksgiving, Russell is called on once again to put on a badge and a gun to help in findng those responsible. With the help of Deputy Wayne Dunkin and his surprising new friend Debra Taylor they find more than they bargain for: international terrorists hiding just below the surface in Madison County Montana. The results are dangerous and deadly!
