For Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz, accepting a series of bookings at Hyde Castle is like a dream come true. Goldy is determined that everything will go right - which is why, she figures later, everything went terribly wrong.It all started before dawn on the day of the first Anglophile lunch, when Goldy had just about the rudest awakening possible: a shotgun blast through her living room window.
