Tony Kozol is back. And so is Nina Lasher, the first real love of his life, only he doesn't know it yet. Tony and his sidekick, bass playing, bear, er, friend, Rock, is back too. This time they are in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, working with Wilford Bodine and his Cherokee Mountain Bluegrass Band. A career step up? Nah, just one more detour along life's bumpy road for our professional musicians and amateur sleuths. And they run into an old friend of Rock's while in town doing the bluegrass gig for the Single Action Gun Enthusiasts Convention. Howdy, pardner! Except this old friend of the family is newly dead and swimming with the fishies. Oh well, guess it's up to Tony and Rock to reel in another murderer!
