“What do you do with a secret that might get someone killed?”
Tenny assumes it’s a joke when someone writes to her advice column on a matter of life and death. After serving as a nurse in the Great War, she doesn’t want more trouble. But when a local turns up dead on her neighbor’s southern Utah homestead, she feels responsible. The murderer is probably an outsider: the prospector looking for gold, a Wobbly hiding from the law, or the handsome-but-irritating barnstormer pilot hanging around town. To clear her friend’s name, though, Tenny will have to look closer at the secrets all around her.
