Fictional Gravely Falls, Colorado, sits on the outskirts of ski country with beautiful views, wonderful landscapes...and murder. Dorothy Collins, the most beautiful woman in town is dead, mauled to death by a bear. Sheriff Hank Crenshaw thinks differently; a bear wouldn't cause a nice clean slice across her neck. All clues point toward his best friend, a known stalker and would-be thief. Lisa Hubbard, known around town for her crazy talk about UFOs and seeing dead presidents, knows the truth about the murder. Will anyone believe her, or will they think she has gone crazy?
