|Summary, etc.:||Cody Hoyt, while a brilliant cop, is an alcoholic struggling with two months of sobriety when his mentor and AA sponsor Hank Winters is found burned to death in a remote mountain cabin. At first it looks like the suicide of a man who's fallen off the wagon, but Cody knows Hank better than that. Sober for fourteen years, Hank took pride in his hard-won sobriety and never hesitated to drop whatever he was doing to talk Cody off a ledge. When Cody takes a closer look at the scene of his friend's death, it becomes apparent that foul play is at hand. After years of bad behavior with his deparment, he's in no position to be investigating a homicide, but this man was a friend and Cody's determined to find his killer.|

Cody Hoyt, a recently reformed alcoholic and Montana police officer, struggles to restrain his temper and longing for a drink. He is convinced that his AA sponsor and mentor, Hank Winters, was murdered and not the victim of an accident, especially because Hoyt knows Winters did not die because he was drunk or careless. As he tracks the killer, Hoyt is led to an outfitter who plans treks (including a group in which Hoyt's son is a participant) through Yellowstone National Park. Graham portrays Hoyt as tightly strung and fiercely determined through a gravelly, angry speaking voice. Hoyt's partner speaks in a clearer voice that fits his straight-shooter personality. The characters, from a snippy coroner to a good-old-boy sheriff, are well defined, and teen characters seem both vulnerable and intelligent. Graham does a good job handling escalating tensions while maintaining the melancholy atmosphere. Box's many fans will appreciate a concluding interview with the author.
