Chief of Police Arly Hanks is the law in Maggody, Arkansas (pop.755), a peaceful little Ozarks town snuggled in the heartland of America. Until a group of camouflage-clad patriots march in with maneuvers--and murder.
It begins when pretty widow Kayleen Smeltner lets a group of demented militants use her back pasture for paint-ball war games during the first weekend of hunting season. Suddenly, burglars are breaking into houses; Mayor Jim Bob is a missing person; and now a survivalist has been killed. Which leaves Arly hunting for a motive, a means, and a murderer. Wisely, she reckons there isn't a secret government conspiracy behind this homicide -- just the usual human evils of blind ambition, big money, and deadly obsessions.
