Once a Wall Street hotshot, Jacobia â€śJakeâ€ť Tiptree chucked
it all for a charmingly dilapidated fixer-upper in the tiny
town of Eastport, Maine. She was certain sheâ€™d left the
dangers of city life behindâ€”until she discovered that no
place, no matter how idyllic and peaceful it may appear, is
safe from murder.
It began with the mysterious disappearance of Harriet
Hollingsworthâ€”Eastportâ€™s snoopiest resident. Everyone is
convinced the old busybody bolted out of town to escape her
creditorâ€”everyone except Jake and her best friend Ellie who
know Harriet would never leave home without her most prized
possession. But before Jake and Ellie can persuade police
chief Bob Arnold to open an investigation, theyâ€™ll need to
come up with proof more sinister than a pair of abandoned
Just as Jake starts poking around for clues, things suddenly
take a troubling turn for the worse. A suspicious accident
nearly kills her teenaged son, Sam, and her husband, Wade,
just misses getting his head blown off. Jake is prepared to
attribute these incidents to a spate of bad luckâ€”until
another â€śaccidentâ€ť leaves a visitor to Eastport unmistakably
Most perplexing, all this mayhem coincides with the
unexpected arrival of a man from Jakeâ€™s past: a former New
York City cop. Harry Markle claims he has unintentionally
brought an unwelcome guest into Eastport: a crook determined
to knock off everyone with ties to Harry. Twenty-four hours
ago, Jakeâ€™s only worry was fixing her broken-down gutters
and downspouts before the big storm swept into town. Now,
everything seems to be falling apart all around her. Jake
knows from experience that the truth is usually as messy and
complicated as do-it-yourself remodeling.
As it becomes chillingly clear that appearances in this
quaint community are more misleading than ever, sheâ€™ll have
to find a way to lure a homicidal maniac into the
light--before he nails another victim.
