Catherine Dumont married S. J. Worthington, an older financial dynamo, in her senior year of college. He was twenty-five years her senior. She became the socialite trophy wife. Then, SJ dies unexpectedly of a heart attack. Or was it murder? Who is the dark figure caught in the security camera after the will had been read? A New York detective is hot on the case.
Catherine tries to move on with her life and follow her college dream of having a dude ranch in Wyoming. Not long after her move to Wyoming, cattle slaughters in the area begin to raise suspicion, and a stranger is seen watching her cabin just beyond the tree line of her property.
With the help of her young loyal ranch hands and one Indian chief, will they succeed in catching him? Was there a connection between SJ’s death and the cattle slaughtering? Was Catherine the ultimate target?
