Jessica James returned home for her summer break to a boring job--a mother--well--and then her cousin dies at the local sawmill where he worked. He said something to her the prior day and now she is more then suspicious. She wants to know what is going on in this tiny town.

Her room mate where she works goes missing. Young girls are being abducted from the Native American Blackfeet land. Environmentally unfriendly things are going on as well.

There is non stop action as Jessica slowly learns the truth-and it isn't pretty!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

She came back for vacation. If she’s not careful, she might leave in a body bag…

“The Jessica James Mysteries are edgy, thrilling, and simply captivating.” —Chicago Tribune

Ivy League student Jessica James isn’t thrilled to be back home in Montana. But her boring summer break becomes a nightmare when her cousin dies at the local sawmill. Devastated by the death, she can’t help but draw connections between the supposed accident and her own father’s unsolved demise…

With the mill’s owner pushing hard to start fracking on Native American Blackfeet land, Jessica starts to connect the dots between the killings. And when two young girls go missing, Jessica calls in her posse to fight blood with brains.

Can Jessica expose the town’s dirty money, or will she too end up as sawdust?
