Thomas Post rated it 5 STARS on Goodreads
It was amazing
Great book as all of Kurt James books are. I downloaded last night and finished it this morning. This one is a little more modern and set in the year 1976 in Rocky Mountain National Park. It has the typical Colorado western flair that all James books do, but with a mystery and thriller to boot. Highly recommended.
