A Nose for Justice is filled with the history of Nevada water rights. Jeep Reed owns a 10,000-acre ranch near Reno, Nevada and she was smart enough to make sure she owned the water rights that came with the land. Jeep also rented water rights from her neighbors which kept SSRM and Wade Properties from developing the land.
Mags Rogers, Jeep’s great-niece, was hit hard during a hill slide on Wall Street. She moved back to Nevada to live with Jeep and to help out on the ranch.
Jeep’s dog, King, and Mag’s dog, Baxter, play important roles in this story of murder, mystery, and mayhem.
Follow Jeep, Mags, King, and Baxter as they dig to uncover the mystery of the buried skeleton in the barn. And help Deputy Pete Meadows and Officer Lonnie Parrish uncover who is behind the bombing of two SSRM water pumps and the murders Sam Peruzzi, Oliver Hitchens and Egon Utrecht.
