While out fly-fishing for trout on his favorite stream, Roscoe police chief Matt Davis stumbles across the remains of a body, barely recognizable as human, killed approximately six months earlier. With no physical evidence, no I.D. and no suspects, it’s up to Chief Davis to not only find the murderer, but to also discover the identity of the victim, a young girl.
Follow three potential victims prior to the murder – any one of whom could be destined for death – as they make there way toward Roscoe. Only two will survive, but which two?
Opening Day is the second in the Matt Davis Mystery Series, and picks up where As the Twig is Bent left off and is a 2012 Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree.
