The Unforgiving Minutes
by Mary Monica Pulver
An investigation of a local crime ring brings police detective Otto Peter Brichter to Tretower Ranch, where he meets Nick Tellios and his niece, Katherine McLeod Price. Kori, as she is called, is a young reclusive woman whose primary interest is in the horses on the ranch. Brichter falls head over heels in love with her, but the trauma of her parents’ murder as a young child still haunts her.
