Kate Fox's perfect life in the serene Nebraska Sandhills is shattered when she receives news of a murder and her husband Ted's grave injury. Her world crumbles further when she discovers Ted's betrayal with a local woman, and her teenage niece Carly's disappearance.

The victim is Carly's grandfather, who was considering selling his ranch to a wealthy environmentalist, stirring up a whirlpool of greed, desperation, and potential murderous intent in their community. As Kate delves into the investigation, she finds herself the target of sinister "accidents".

In Shannon Baker's "Stripped Bare", Kate must brave the storm, unmask a killer, and reclaim her life, even as it threatens to spin out of control. In the heart of the Sandhills, truth is the only path to survival.

Dark Signal

( Book #2 of The Kate Fox Series )

by Shannon Baker (Author) |  Category: Mystery & Crime

Things aren’t always as bad as they seem.
Sometimes, they’re a lot worse.


"...a finely crafted mystery that moves to its powerful climax like the rush of an oncoming train." —Anne Hillerman, New York Times bestselling author

Kate Fox has just defeated her ex-husband in the race for Grand County Sheriff, but there’s no time for celebration. Instead, she’s called to the railroad tracks just outside of town.

The train engineer is dead. His conductor is in shock. And Kate’s gut is telling her this is much more than just a horrific accident.

The victim's widow is behaving oddly. The neighbor’s story doesn’t add up. The victim had recently made several enemies—and they all have motive for murder.

As Kate works to solve the case, she knows she has to trust her instincts—even if that means disagreeing with State Patrol Officer Trey Ridnour.

With the stakes high and the whole town watching, Kate uncovers a plot darker than she ever imagined. The clock is ticking, and Kate knows it’s up to her to bring the killer to justice... before tragedy strikes again.

A twisted and intricate mystery with secrets that will leave you stunned.

Kate Fox, a sheriff with something to prove, must dig through the private lives of the people in her town, including her own brother, to solve her most shocking mystery yet.

"...Baker’s writing is crisp and delightfully descriptive, her plots intricate, and—best of all—Kate Fox is a wonderful mix of boot-leather toughness and latent vulnerability..." —James Chandler, author of Misjudged

With her ex-husband, Ted, working nearby in an adjoining county, Kate Fox is eager to prove she’s the better sheriff. And when the less-than-popular ex-foreman of a local ranch is found dead, Kate gets the opportunity she’s been looking for.

But as it turns out, the case hits a little too close to home. The dead man’s body is discovered in Kate’s brother Jeremy’s truck—and her brother is missing. Evidence left at the crime scene leads Ted to suspect the ranch’s new foreman, but Kate isn’t convinced he’s responsible for the crime.

Kate dives into her own investigation. But the mystery only deepens when strange events start taking place and it seems like everyone close to the ex-foreman has secrets to hide and reasons to kill—including Jeremy.

As Kate races to eliminate suspects, a shocking realization leads her to the truth. You won't want to miss the secrets that she uncovers.
