(The first book in the Kate Fox Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
In this riveting novel from award-winning author Shannon Baker, a Nebraska county sheriff’s wife investigates a murder—and her husband is the prime suspect.

"...atmosphere so realistically captivating that you’ll smell the fresh-cut hay and feel the muddy dirt-path roads. Complicated relationships, surprising twists and a touch of humor make Stripped Bare a must read." —Alex Kava, New York Times bestselling author

When Kate Fox receives a late-night phone call, her seemingly perfect life on the Nebraska prairie shatters in an instant.

Eldon, shirt-tail relative and owner of one of the largest cattle ranches in Grand County, has been killed.

Kate's husband, Ted, the Grand County Sheriff, has been shot and may never walk again.

And worst of all, Ted is the prime suspect in Eldon’s murder.

Desperate to clear Ted's name, Kate throws herself headlong into the hunt for the real killer.

When Kate finds herself the victim of several mysterious “accidents” she knows she’s running out of time. If she doesn’t find out who killed Eldon soon, she—or someone else in town—may be the next to turn up dead.

But a shocking confession throws everything into doubt, and as Kate keeps digging she unearths unfathomable secrets—the kind worth killing for.
