Overview

Divorce a husband, lose a career …grapple with a murder.

TV journalist Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher will tell you she committed two sins — she didn’t stay young, and she made an enemy of a powerful news executive — her ex. She used to break national news. Now her top story as the “Helping Out!” reporter at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman,Wyoming is getting a defective toaster repaired.

Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming — the land of cattle, cowboys, tumbleweeds, and fewer than six people per square mile — her new home or a road to permanent obscurity?

Soon she’s in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who sees her as a handy rung on his career ladder. And there’s the matter of a deputy sheriff—missing or murdered? Elizabeth finds herself investigating at the insistence of a girl who’s set on proving her father’s innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas Burrell makes investigating easy.

But Elizabeth won’t fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her Sign Off.

I would have given it a higher rating except some of the characters were ripped off of idiotic TV characters.

A 220 page very well-written free mystery of a top east coast political TV reporter sent to a small Wyoming station to finish her contract when her divorce from her producer husband gets vindictive. Personalities clash and her stint as a Consumer reporter is even regarded with jealousy and innuendo. Then a small girl's demand that she save her Daddy from a murder......... What will a few questions matter? And so starts an interesting, amusing, ironic, and convoluted tale in a small western town.

Good but not great. A little hard to keep characters straight so somewhat confusing, but a decent mystery to read.
