One day when Nina hears gunshots in her woods even though there are signs stating no hunting, she runs into the forest hoping to catch the hunter. When Nina fails to come back people look for her and find her corpse with a bullet in it. Sally thinks it would be a nice testimonial if she writes a book about Nina's extraordinary life. On Halloween Eve, someone leave an envelope of white powder on Sally doorstep and though it isn't anthrax a big scare occurs. A second murder happens when one of the members of Sally's band is killed. It becomes obvious someone wants to stop Sally from gathering information about Nina but that doesn't stop Sally from looking for a killer.
