(A true Story)

This book is not suitable for young adults!

Sometime in the night a woman screamed. The next morning Pat Botham, Linda Miracle, and Linda's two toddler sons were simply gone. It was the perfect murder until the railroad lowered the water level in the Gunnison River and exposed the bodies.

Mattie Rhoades had no desire to become involved in the aftermath of the crime and didn't - until someone told her something about one of the suspects that no one else knew.

This book is not suitable for readers under the age of 18. Previously titled Colorado Cold Case.

This is a work of fiction based on a true story – my story. That is not to say that everything in it is true, but that what I heard from other people served to influence the decisions I made. The conversation between Sam and Mattie is fiction and meant only as a storytelling tool.

Some of the names have been changed.
