Overview

Sheriff Kurt Muller, aging hippie, single father, and son of one of Aspen’s founders, finds himself confronted by more than the usual tensions between the chic international celebrity jet set and the local community fighting the resort’s enormous growth. A man is dead, his washed-out body found in the Roaring Fork with a bullet hole behind one ear. A woman is missing, her handbag still hidden under Kurt Muller’s Jeep seat. And the violence that is erupting around Aspen-—violence laced with kinky sex, international politics, and local power-—is leading Muller to the darkest truths a man can confront: about his past, about his family, and about another murder in the high Rocky Mountain air...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When Kurt Miller, ex-hippie sheriff of Aspen, Colorado, finds a body in the Roaring Fork River, he plunges into a complex case involving Argentinian terrorists, local politics, his own marital problems, and doubts about his suitability for the job. Resigning, but continuing to investigate, he is forced to confront his past, including his Vietnam vet brother's mysterious suicide. Zigal develops male and female characters well, including a Hunter Thompson-type who would be at home in a James Crumley tale. The author keeps an intricate plot going, knows his Colorado scene, and creates a main character readers will want to meet again. This is an unusually fine first mystery and should win many fans who will rejoice to learn that Zigal is working on a second Muller story. Highly recommended.
