Seeking a fresh start after ending a decade-long stagnant relationship, 30-year-old Beth Williams returned to her hometown of Davison City, located on the Northwest Minnesota prairie. While most of the world is transfixed by the televised images of the first manned lunar orbit, Beth rushes through the eerily quiet city park trying to get to work on time. Suddenly, a body rolls down the hill and lands near her feet. Before the police arrive, the body disappears and they dismiss the whole thing as a drunk who fell, and then wandered off after regaining consciousness. However, Beth is certain that a murder was committed. She and her best friend, Evie Hanson, decide to investigate. The menace grows when Beth discovers she is being followed around town. Now, Beth and Evie must solve the case before it is too late.
