After Cammie Wilson moves with her mother to a small Colorado town, she witnesses what looks like a horrible crime. But no one, not even her uncle, the Police Chief, believes her. Her dad might, but he's away, serving in Afghanistan.
When a second body turns up and the town oddball is blamed, Cammie realizes she's the only one who knows enough to find the real culprit.
Her worried mom has decided that now is the time for Cammie to have a service dog because of a peanut allergy. But how can Cammie make new friends with this dopey dog tagging along?
And how, when everything is stacked against her, can she follow the trail of clues in time?
