Freddie didn't know what to expect when she arrived in Elko to attend a gathering of cowboy poets. What she found was actual cowboys-and cowgirls-reciting verse, drinking whiskey, and catching up with old buddies. The friendly get-together turned ugly, though, when one of the cowboy poets was found dead, and Freddie's boyfriend was accused. Now she's learning more about Sam's past than she ever knew, and hoping she hasn't been keeping company with a killer.
