But Mustang is about to be tested as he investigates his first suspicious death, a floater found in a pond under the Sky Bucket ride, from which the deputy believes he fell, jumped - or was thrown. But the deputy doesnt know why Sheriff Big Bass has personally assigned him to the case, there are signs of a cover-up, and Mustang is about to get a good look at his departments dark underbelly. Before its over, hes going to learn that justice, the law, and doing whats right are all different things, and he may not like - or survive -- the dangerous little place where they overlap!

So when Sheriff Big Bass asks him to take a secretive, off-duty, second look at the case, hes eager to please despite the danger, and questions about the sheriffs true motives.
