Publisher's Summary

Even long memories fade, but murder never dies.

Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher has been among TV journalism’s elite. But divorcing her network exec husband ends not only her marriage but her career, and she’s banished to tiny KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming, to finish out her contract. Now she’s exploring what comes next - in her career, her life, and her relationships with family, friends, and those who’d like to be more than friends.

But she’s not being left in peace to wrestle with these issues because she keeps being drawn in to murder investigations. Now Elizabeth, and handsome KWMT colleague Mike Paycik, rugged rancher Thomas Burrell, and her colorful cast of collaborators, plunge into mysteries from the past that threaten the present. To succeed, they must untangle characters and plot lines from a long-hidden Back Story.

"Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page." (Emilie Richards, USA Today best-selling author)

I have read every book in the Caught Dead in Wyoming series. Back story is another entertaining and well written addition. The plot is well written and the characters are engaging. I love this series and wish the other books were available in a more timely fashion.
