About Remembering Toni

A tale of love, love lost, deception and murder. 

The murder of a New York City escort worker takes a New York City police detective to a small college town in Southeastern Idaho. The investigation, a collaboration of the detective and a local newspaper writer, reveals a forbidden love affair along a  trail of deadly deception in this noir tale. The narrative, driven by murder and scandal, takes in the larger issues of female victimization, romantic ardor and love lost. It is a timeless account in which its setting, a close-knit community on the Snake River Plain that is an economic and industrial hub neighboring a Native-American reservation, serves as a microcosm of loves and passions and of women and men who belong to diverse social tribes everywhere.
