Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Amateur Sleuth
Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree abandoned Wall Street to its
bankruptcies and bailouts for a far more rewarding life
fixing up an 1823 Federal-style house in Eastport, Maine.
But in Sarah Gravesâ€™s chilling new mystery thriller, Jake
discovers that no matter what your address, the most
terrifying crimes always hit closest to home.The infamous
Dodd murders are hardly among Eastportâ€™s proudest
legacies. So when bestselling true-crime author Carolyn
Rathbone arrives to research the case for a new book, the
locals in the seaside town let her know that sheâ€™s about
as welcome as a spoiled clam. But surely no one would harm
a crime writer out of a sense of civic prideâ€“or would they?
Jake has her own problems, from the mysteries of old-house
insulation to an anonymous caller plaguing her with death
threats. But with Carolynâ€™s arrival, the slayings of the
wealthy Dodd women suddenly go from cold case to hot topicâ€“
much to someoneâ€™s dismay. For Carolyn Rathboneâ€™s untimely
investigation hasnâ€™t only reopened old wounds and stirred
up new suspicions; itâ€™s unearthed a string of deadly
secretsâ€“ones that a cunning killer is grimly determined to
rebury right along with Carolyn herself.Suddenly Jake
finds herself inescapably targeted by one of the most
deranged criminal minds sheâ€™s ever encountered. For as
much as she fights to insulate herself from his grisly
compulsions, someone with a taste for terror has already
crept closer than she dares to imagine. Sheâ€™d rather die
than lose the home and family sheâ€™s builtâ€“and that suits
her nemesis fine, because her death is just exactly what
he has planned.
