When the call comes in that Mike Wilson, the unlikable owner of the fancy West Branch Lodge, has gone missing, Sheriff Bo Tully is delighted. He'll have to stay at the lodge and investigate in luxury! But when an avalanche traps him there for the foreseeable future, along with his retired sheriff father, a motley group of vacationers, and a naughty old flame, life starts to get complicated. The missing persons case turns out to be a murder case, Tully discovers the avalanche was no accident of nature, and suddenly everyone starts to look like a suspect -- even the murder victim! It's up to Tully to figure it all out in this comic romp through the wilds of Blight County, Idaho, from bestselling author Patrick McManus.
