The mayor Kippy had stopped to ask Angelica about the weather due to the full bus of tourists visiting the town. Suddenly, Dag Ulster, one of the band members, comes running in the parking space and enters.

The local police sergeant Cary Stewart broke the door behind him to inform them that her friend and bandmate, Maisie Prine was dead. Laine offered Dag a ride home while Cray remained to give Angelica more details.

Maisie was wrapped in a trap, tied with a clothesline, and had a big wound on the back of her head. Later her body was covered and thrown into the river. The last call on her cellphone was from Dag, informing her that she didn’t want to do ‘this’ and would regret it.

Dag becomes the first suspect, and while they talked, someone else came in, Clary Needleman, with more details about a fight Maisie had with Loy Stash the previous weekend. He had threatened her, and Cary and Angelica had to look for the killer as soon as possible.

There are also rumors that ghouls from the mountain’s shadowy dells are the killers, but with no evidence, they can’t make the rule out yet.
