From one of the most acclaimed new mystery writers working today comes a riveting novel of suspense that will have you guessing until the last page is turned. When Kat Stone, master-of-disguise private investigator, spots a dead body atop the Jeffrey's Point Lighthouse one morning, she recognizes the man as her apartment building's maintenance man, Tambo Campion, a French expat. Police assume that he tried to kill himself by jumping off the GWB, but Kat's not so sure - why would he miss the water?
