Mattie is looking forward to seeing her brother again after so many years apart. They share bad memories and she’d rather not relive them but seeing him would be good. She never imagined he’d be dead when she saw him next.

When Cole and his girls go for a horseback ride in the high country, he’s horrified when his dog brings them a boot with a remainder of a foot in it. That sets off a search. Not only do they find that victim, they find three more in other graves.

One of them was her brother, which she discovers when investigating the crime. The others were adults and children. Why would someone kill her brother and who would kill children? Also, why would they have used this alpine meadow for a burial ground? The rangers and the cops have their work cut out for them.
