Corporate Trainer Lysi Weston leaves San Francisco to present a sexual harassment seminar in Big Sky Country. She isn't surprised at resistance from a bunch of red neck "Montana Marlboro Men" but the murder of her colleague stuns her. She sniffs out a maze of suspects and tracks each one with the single-mindedness of a bloodhound. Cheyenne detective, James Tennyson tolerates Weston's meddling until it jeopardizes his investigation. He orders her to stay out of his case, a directive she ignores. Things get hotter than a Montana heat wave when Weston finds herself immersed in a hostile world that includes a lecherous cowboy, a corporate casanova, a sex-obsessed judo junkie and a terrified gay victim. Somewhere a killer lurks. Weston needs to find the killer before the killer finds her.
