Nick, a freelance photographer on a year-long assignment arrives in Helena, Montana, wanting some rest--mystery free. He meets a few new friends, tries to relax, and works to sort out his relationships and even his plans for the future. But there has been an odd murder in the hills west of town, and it's never far from the news or his mind. There's not much to go on except a small clue from a photograph he and another photographer took.
Then the local police get a tip, and Nick finds that he may be closer to the murderer than he thought. Will Nick be caught up in a murder again? This time, it's more personal than ever.
