About the Book

This story features Gary “Swifty” Olson. Swifty has been Kit Andrews partner in their company for several years. After receiving a phone call from his sister notifying him of his father’s death, Swifty takes time off to see his mother and attend the funeral. When he gets to the family ranch in Cody, Wyoming, he visits the scene of the auto accident his father died in. What he finds doesn’t make sense, so he begins to snoop around and ask questions. The answers are elusive, and he finds clues his father may have been murdered. This is a story of a son searching to find out who may have murdered his father and why. In his search for answers, Swifty encounters old friends like veterinarian Ann Dexter, sheriff’s clerk, Melinda Swanson, and high school chum Lefty Phillips. He also runs into old enemies and manages to make some new ones in the course of his investigation. After a frustrating search for information, he gets a clue from his favorite Aunt, Judy Vannoy and soon finds himself face to face with a grandfather he had never met, and thought was dead. Swifty embarks on a search for the truth and seeks revenge for his father’s murder. A task that becomes more and more dangerous both for Swifty and his friends.
