When two children make a grisly discovery on Sconset beach, Detective Meredith Folger finds herself with a perplexing case on her hands. The crime lab can tell her only that the newly unearthed skeletal remains belonged to a woman who was strangled to death somewhere between two and ten years ago--a conclusion that sends Merry sifting through old missing-persons files. But then a shocking piece of news changes everything.
The Massachusetts police have arrested a man they believe to be a serial killer. His five known victims were all women--all strangled. Is Merry's Nantucket skeleton the killer's first victim? And do the state cops have the right man? When the murderer strikes again, he'll draw Merry into a deadly cat and mouse game in which she's the final target....
"Mystery fans should add Mathew's book to their reading list."
"A smart, savvy, appealing heroine who's definitely worth getting to know...One more fine entry in a series that just keeps getting better."
"The detection is first-rate, sadly a rarity in many crime novels these days. Mathews dares you to guess the killer, and so do I."
--The Plain Dealer, Cleveland
