Jaded by divorce and big-city corruption, a former Chicago cop returns to his boyhood home and takes a job as a rural police chief. All he wants is a quiet life and the occasional stiff cocktail at his favorite haunt- a secluded lakeside resort that was once a gangster hideaway. Then trouble walks into the bar wearing a tight black skirt, a snowmobiling sniper takes aim, and there's a murder at the French Country Inn. It's been a long, cold winter in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, but when crime heats up and passions flare, it's almost more than one man can handle... A tale of modern crime in a town filled with colorful characters...and echos of the Roaring Twenties.

To those who know him best, Clyde Deighton is the most uninteresting man in the world. Taciturn by nature and reclusive by design, he spends most of his time pursuing the life of a novelist and poetaster. Born in the Midwest, Deighton did not stray from his small village until he was 19. Before he tried his hand at writing, the author was a cucumber salesman, Christmas tree grower, schoolteacher, and failed piano player. He has no hobbies or interests, but spends copious amounts of time watching 1950s Westerns on television. Even though he lacks any ambition to do so, the author hopes to publish a second book someday. Deighton seldom travels beyond his home in rural Wisconsin. He does, however, make occasional forays to the Lake Geneva resort area, where he stays at the French Country Inn.
