A Henry “Whispering” Smith Mystery

Henry “Whispering” Smith returns to his North Carolina home after years of tracking livestock rustlers on the desolate Colorado Plateau. Agreeing to be best man at his uncle’s wedding, Henry ends up facing the two things that drove him away: a pig-headed father he doesn’t like and an unfaithful ex-girlfriend he does. Plans for a brief visit change after a close friend is murdered. Cattle theft appears to be the motive. When the local police are reluctant to believe Henry, he uses his knowledge and skill as a tracker to help bring a killer to justice. While struggling to reconcile his past, Henry follows a trail that leads uncomfortably close to his heart, and just might shape his future.
