Eight years ago, in Sun Valley - snowcapped playground for the wealthy and ambitious - all that stood between New York State attorney general Elizabeth Shaler and a knife-wielding killer was local patrolman Walt Fleming. Now Liz Shaler returns to Sun Valley as the crown jewel and keynote speaker for billionaire Patrick Cutterâ€™s world-famous C3, a media and communications conference where the richest, most powerful business tycoons converge. The attorney general, a political lightning rod, is expected to announce her candidacy for president. Itâ€™s a media coup for Cutter - but a security nightmare for Walt Fleming, now the county sheriff. As C3 gets under way, authorities learn of a confirmed threat on Shalerâ€™s life, and various competing interests - the Secret Service, the FBI, Cutterâ€™s own security forces - begin jockeying for jurisdiction. Beyond the logistical nightmare that the conferenceâ€™s extravagances represent for Sheriff Fleming, he must also contend with a raft of other local concerns: his nephewâ€™s arrest, his wifeâ€™s infidelity, the death of a socialite under suspicious circumstances, and a series of apparent maulings by a cougar. Each of these incidents comes to a head just as Shalerâ€™s assassin puts his chillingly precise plan into action.

Thanks to a spirited performance by Christopher Lane, heres a thriller you can finish in a weekend. Sheriff Walt Fleming must protect a presidential candidate who has come to Sun Valley for a high-powered conference. A hired assassin is also in town and is determined to kill her. At the same time, Fleming must deal with numerous problems heaped on him by local residents--a womans death under questionable circumstances, his nephews arrest, and the need to track an elusive cougar.
