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 crown jewel and 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.

The clock ticks down to Shaler’s address as we track the chilling precision of her assassin’s preparations.
