Yellowstone is mostly in Wyoming, but, touches Idaho and Montana. There is a small area on the Idaho side where there is no law….and no way to prosecute criminals. The murder of 4 people happened in this area, and the person who did it turned himself in knowing he would be set free.
Joe is sent to find out why this person murdered the people and to try to get him prosecuted.
