Wynn Duvall never heard of a 100-mile race until he meets lean, athletic Dorrie. Two hours later they find her brother, head bloody and thoroughly dead. Now the killer is after them, and Wynn finds himself using wit and wiles he summons up to protect Dorrie on her run through lonely Wisconsin woods.
Nothing about his idyllic life in the small town of St. Clair, Wisconsin, could ever prepare Wynn Duvall for the trouble his sister is about to bring his way. Her arrival in town is tailed by an extremely active and malicious dead man and her equally evil sidekick, and before Wynn knows it, he is up to his neck in threats, intrigue, amateur sleuthing and attempts on his life. And before his eyes the fabric of his idyllic life begins to unravel.
