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....

"Outstanding...Mathews is a dazzling talent indeed. This book has it all--fascinating, beautifully drawn characters, such a realistically rendered setting that you can hear the waves as you read, page-turning suspense, the struggle of good vs. evil so skillfully brought to the forefront that I'll be thinking about the issues that the book raised for a long time to come....A must read."
