TV journalist Elizabeth Danniher committed two sins — she didn’t stay young, and she made an enemy of a powerful news executive — her ex. She used to break national news. Now she’s relegated to fluff pieces at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming.
Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming — the land of cattle, cowboys and tumbleweeds — her new home or a road to permanent obscurity?
Soon Elizabeth finds herself investigating a murder at the insistence of a little girl who’s set on proving her father’s innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas Burrell makes investigating easy.
But Elizabeth won’t fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her Sign Off.
