Jacobia Tiptree saved her sanity--and her son, Sam--the day she abandoned Wall Street for the seacoast village of Eastport, Maine. In her new home, a charmingly dialpidated fixer-upper, she looks forward to repairing old radiators and restoring antique shutter for years to come. But Jake's hopes of serenity are dashed when tiny Eastport erupts in a crime wave.
Hometown bad boy Kenny Mumford--old flame of Jake's best fiend and fellow sleuth, Ellie White--is the first victim. When his corpse washes up on the beach at Prince's Cove, all evidence points to a drowning...except the bullet hole in his forehead.
When bodies begin littering the Maine scenery, Jake and Ellie learn that the ante on Kenny's small-town antics has been upped. Add a pair of unwelcome arrivlas--Jake's ex-husband, and an unscrupulous New York ex-money mogul--and you've got a blueprint for more deadly danger than one house can hold.
