Attorney Brady Coyne is on his way back home to Boston from his usual weekend commute to bucolic Garrison, Maine, when he gives Charolotte Gillespie a ride home from taking her sick dog to the veterinarian. But Brady suspects the soft-spoken African-American woman has personal reasons for choosing to live way off the beaten track in an isolated hunting shack, especially when he notices swastika graffiti on her property and learns her dog was poisoned.
And when Charlotte sends him a cryptic letter requesting his legal services, only to disappear days later, leaving no clue as to her whereabouts--except more spray-painted swastikas on her land--Brady knows something's very wrong. Now he's taken on a case for an invisible client, in a town where gossip flows freely, but truth is locked away behind closed doors and blank stares.
Suddenly, the quaint little New England hamlet doesn't seem quite so friendly anymore. And as Brady follows the trail that brought Charlotte to Garrison months earlier, someone who may now be guilty of double-homicide is following close on his heels--someone who's prepared to silence him for good.

Anyone who cut some of their genre eyeteeth on the excellent books about the fishing, hunting, and crime-solving (in that order of preference) Boston lawyer Brady Coyne will be delighted to hear that William G. Tapply has brought him back for another mystery that combines expert entertainment with some serious social issues. Sharing a house in Maine with his "virtual spouse," writer Alexandria Shaw, Coyne gives a tough, independent African American woman named Charlotte Gillespie a lift and an offer of help finding the person who poisoned her dog. When Charlotte disappears and red swastikas are painted on her house and on Coyne's car, he--and we--know that something nasty is going on. The complicated plot involves a connection to the KKK and a bunch of deer-hunting, conniving computer scientists, and along the way Coyne gets to fish in several heartbreakingly beautiful locations. Other Coyne books include the equally satisfying Close to the Bone. --Dick AdlerAbout the Author:
