Water can keep you alive …
A man in a wheelchair goes missing in rough country in the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming. Reporter and amateur sleuth Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher and KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik immediately join the search organized by local rancher Thomas Burrell.
But soon they’re on a search of a different kind – a search for the truth.
It takes them deep into the intricacies of the community served by the Red Sail Ditch – the irrigation system that could make a ranch viable or worthless. They find rivalries, cooperation, antagonisms, inter-dependencies, and motives for murder.
… Or get you killed.
