Murder at Henry's Fork is a mystery novel set in a small town near Railroad Ranch, a famous Idaho nature preserve on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River. It is an intriguing story of blackmail and murder and a heartening story comradeship and growth.

Chris Donahue and his fifteen year old son, Justin move to Riverview to make a life fishing the Henrys Fork and building fly rods for a living. Justin meets Dodger Clancy the school bus and takes him home. A smart, thoughtful boy, Chris promises to teach him to fish and to build rods.

The Henry's Fork isn’t as peaceful as it seems. Sheriff Sam Barnstable is robbing cabins to supplement his income; Eric Carson, a store owner with grudge lawmen is poaching deer and selling drugs on the side; and Dutch, a colorful conman with a ditzy wife is looking to make a big score.

Guiding Anton Chalmers and his insurance investigator wife, Shirl, Justin is badly traumatized when Sheriff Sam’s body floats down the river into him. Anton and Shirl take up the investigation and soon narrow their suspects down to Dutch and Eric. When Dutch goes missing, they suspect blackmail and murder. Breaking into Eric’s walk-in freezer, they find Dutch’s body hanging from a meat hook and bags of drugs on the floor. Justin and Dodger are on a fishing trip with Eric. Fearing they’re are in for a similar fate, Chris, Anton, and Shirl embark on a desperate chase to save them.
