Eight years ago, in Sun Valley-snowcapped playground for the wealthy and ambitious-all that stood between U.S. Attorney General Elizabeth Shaler and a knife-wielding killer was local patrolman Walt Fleming. Now Liz Shaler returns to Sun Valley as the keynote speaker of billionaire Patrick Cutter`s world-famous media and communications conference, a convergence of the richest, most powerful business tycoons. The controversial attorney general is expected to announce her candidacy for president. It`s a media coup for Cutter-but a security nightmare for Walt Fleming, now the county sheriff.
As the Cutter conference gets under way, authorities learn of a confirmed threat on Shaler`s life, and various competing interests-the Secret Service, the FBI, Cutter`s own security forces -begin jockeying for jurisdiction. Amid the conference`s opulent extravagances, Walt is suddenly shaken by an apparent murder, his nephew`s arrest, and a haunting legacy from his family`s past. The clock ticks down toward Shaler`s keynote address as we track the chilling precision of her assassin`s preparations.
