Jill Breck was just doing her job as a river guide when she saved the life of Lane Faroe, son of two of St. Kilda Consulting's premier operators. But when a string of ominous events—including a mysterious fire that kills her great-aunt and a furor in the Western art world raised by a dozen Breck family paintings—culminates in a threat to her life, Jill reluctantly calls in a favor. Zach Balfour works part-time as a consultant for St. Kilda. His expertise is gathering and analyzing information from unlikely and often dangerous sources. Though he's got the skills to be a highly effective bodyguard, being a bullet catcher isn't his preferred way to spend time. Protecting Jill will take him into familiar territory—among a strange, savagely competitive bunch of collectors who'll do anything to stay at the top. But Jill is in deeper waters than she's ever known; as she soon discovers, the perils of running wild rivers are tame compared with the hidden dangers in the high-stakes game of art collecting. From the cozy rooms of the Breck homestead cabin to the cold multimillion-dollar galleries of the Western art circuit, Zach and Jill must race against time to unmask a ruthless killer hidden in a blue smoke of money, threats, lies, and death. . . .

Every year at the upscale Mohawk HIlls Country Club, the members fight tooth and nail to win the club’s coveted Cappuccino Cup. This annual contest pits the club’s members of Italian ancestry against those of other heritages. The matches are always hard fought and at times bitter, but when a dead body turns up on the eighteenth green, the competition may have spun out of control. Sheriff Billy Hogan, a lawman more accustomed to traffic accidents and trespassers than homicide investigation, is confronted with a murder mystery eerily similar to one that took place on the same putting green forty years ago when his father was the Sheriff. Hogan’s investigation of the murder and subsequent killings lead him down a perilous path and brings him face to face with a shadowy and powerful adversary. Vincent Falcone is the club’s wealthiest and most frightening figure and he stands much to lose if Hogan learns the truth. It is a truth that will force the Sheriff to confront much of his own family’s tragic past and reveal startling facts about one of the most dark and infamous moments in our country’s history. As Hogan and his band of deputies stumble and bumble their way through their investigation, Falcone and his dark forces threaten to destroy all that the Sheriff holds dear. But the key to the case is held by a quiet and unexpected source, and as the events surrounding the Cappuccino Cup draw to a close, it is a dangerous and deadly chase along the back nine of life.
