Matt Baer has just been elected the new sheriff of Sentinel, Wyoming. Matt is a man that wants to shake his past, a past that included Ben Childers - the most hated man in the county. Starting a new life with the new job should have been easy -- hand out a few speeding tickets, deal with the occasional petty theft, or a few underage teenagers drinking - a pretty calm job. Matt was all set to be a 21st century Andy Taylor in a western version of Mayberry.
Then he found himself in a deserted parking lot with a sword at the back of his neck.
Callenda Smith was dropped into Sentinel by the U.S. Marshal's as part of the Witness Protection Program. She is a ragin' Cajun with a fiery temper, and a sister that needs duct taped to a chair to keep her out of trouble and a Russian mob hot off her trail.
Russian mobsters, naked dancers, an overprotective ferret, and two people with very jaded hearts find themselves targeted for very different reasons. Once the dust settles, they just might find their Mayberry.
