Logan has been staying at the Pinetop Motel for several days. It is the motel owner’s son that is being held by the Carson Creek Sheriff’s Department.
Logan carries out his own investigation, and discovers a clue which proves to him that Tanya had been attacked on the highway, and that her body had then been moved.
The killer is local, and realizes that Logan’s interference could ultimately lead to him, so calls in a favor from a gangster in Denver to have Logan eliminated.
