When Nantucket homeowner Preston Lomax is killed in his McMansion, everyone on the island could be a suspect. Lomax lived large, owed money, and the word was spreading he was planning to stiff them all and disappear. Chief of Police Henry Kennis, a newcomer from California, finds himself investigating with help from the State Police. Together they solve the case or so it appears. But Kennis can t shake the feeling that they ve missed something.
Kennis soon discovers scandals and intrigues behind the scenes in one of America's most exclusive resort locations. This glamorous setting hosts an eclectic cast of local characters oddball journalists, surfing carpenters, drug dealers, wealthy homeowners, and their slacker children. Kennis uncovers a truth that lies somewhere between the bad blood and the good neighbors and realizes that the real answer hits painfully close to home.
