Beautiful Arly Walbridge is found hanging by a rope in a cottonwood grove. To sheriff Pickles Offut, the signs are clear: suicide, pure and simple. But Frank James, reporter and Arly's old lover, doesn't believe it. Rich in character, Barbed Wire is a taut, emotionally charged mystery that will keep readers guessing to the last page.
