Dr. Erica Merrill, a young vet trying to establish her veterinary practice in her hometown, a small Northern Idaho county seat, gets involved in a murder investigation when a drug she has dispensed for a family dog is used to poison a wealthy widow. A battle over inheritance means that everyone involved with the household has a motive. But only the nine-year-old granddaughter has both means and opportunity.

Neither Erica nor her deputy sheriff boyfriend, Clay Caldwell, want to believe that a child would murder her grandmother, but they wonder if her father could have persuaded her to do it.
