dead cat bounce n. Stock market jargon for a small,
temporary rise in a stock's trading price after a sharp drop.
Since she bought her rambling old fixer-upper of a house,
Jacobia Tiptree has gotten used to finding things broken.
But her latest problem isn't so easily repaired. Along with
the rotting floor joists and sagging support beams, there's
the little matter of the dead man in Jake's storeroom, an
ice pick firmly planted in his cranium.
Not much happens in her tiny Maine town, but that's about to
change. Jake's unknown guest turns out to be a world-famous
corporate raider, local boy turned billionaire Threnody
McIlwaine. When Jake's best friend, quiet and dependable
Ellie White, readily confesses to the murder, cops and
journalists swarm into snowbound Eastport.
Jake smells a cover-up, and begins poking into past history
between McIlwaine and Ellie's family. But someone doesn't
like nosy neighbors...and Jake's rustic refuge may become
her final resting place.
