Being the sheriff of Blaine County, Idaho, does not seem like a terribly demanding job, but Walt Fleming always seems to have more stress than he can handle. In this third installment of Ridley Pearson's KILLER series, Fleming is juggling the tasks of being a single father to his twin daughters, dealing with his ex-wife (who has just shacked up with one of his deputies), steering his troubled nephew through adolescence, and trying to tune out the unwelcome advice of his own father. His personal problems are coming to a head just as Sun Valley gears up for their social event of the year, the annual wine auction, which this year features some highly prized bottles which once belonged to Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. As the affluent and ambitious bidders flow into town, they are shadowed by a flock of thieves who are scheming to drink their fill of the riches, and it is up to Walt to prevent a heist which is as sophisticated as the tastes of the wealthy connoisseurs.
Overseeing an annual wine auction that attracts high-competition connoisseurs from all over the country, Blaine County Sheriff Walt Fleming provides security for a trio of priceless bottles that have been targeted by thieves, an assignment that turns deadly when a bomb explodes. (Suspense).
