The show opens right up to a song that Doctor Danfield and Rusty Fairfax are enjoying at a Western dude ranch. Who would have thought that a ranch in Southern Arizona would have snow? Not only that, but enough snow to create white out conditions, and keep the clients locked up indoors? It has lasted for a few days now, and at least a few are getting cabin fever, and tempers flare. An unhappy marriage is revealed, as is a possible affair. Will it be a surprise that a murder is on the agenda?
Doc Danfield examines the crime scene and begins getting to the bottom of the mystery. A strange letter offers clues, and when a second murder is discovered, the number of possible killers is whittled down. It shouldn’t be a surprise to the listener who the killer is. The real mystery is how the cklues play together, and how they lead to solid evidence that Doc Danfield can use.
Will the weather ever clear up? Will Rusty and Dan ever get their fun holiday away from the stress of the big city? Will Dan ever notice Rusty’s true affections? Maybe. Listen and learn for yourself.
