Nick O'Flannigan is a freelance photographer on a very specific assignment: photograph all of the state capitol buildings for A book being created by Travel USA magazine in a single year. It seems pretty easy, but in the first two cities he has visited, he's fallen into murder investigations. Determined not to repeat his mistake, he heads to Sacramento.
However, curious circumstances and a theft drop him right back in the middle of a mystery, and this time it is personal. With the help of a new friend, he's determined to complete his assignment and get his property back. Will doing both also solve another crime? Or will Nick once again find himself in danger?
