Suspected child predator Wayne Castine was found brutally murdered in Brattleboro, where he was involved with an extended family living in a local trailer park. Any member of the clan would have had the opportunity to kill him, and - as he was involved with both the mother and her 12-year-old daughter - reason to commit murder. Meanwhile, Joe Gunther learns that his girlfriend's father and brother, lost at sea off the Maine coast, might have been murdered.

"THE BEST POLICE-PROCEDURAL SERIES IN AMERICA." "Chicago"" Tribune"
Joe Gunther's Vermont Bureau of Investigation team is plenty busy trying to solve the grisly murder of Wayne Castine, a suspected child predator who's got mob ties in the area. But Gunther has other pressing, more personal business to attend to: the old case of his girlfriend Lyn Silva's father and brother. Fishermen both, they were once believed to be lost at sea. Until today
"With its excellent noir touches, terrific plots, and really interesting central character...The Joe Gunther series is one of the best around." "Globe and Mail" (Toronto)
With the Castine investigation in full swing, now is hardly the time for Gunther to go AWOL and join Lyn in Maine. But as more evidence emerges, the less it seems that the Silvas were innocent victims. Turns out they had some involvement with a gang of vicious smugglers men who will do whatever it takes to keep Lyn and Gunther from finding the truth and who will kill to keep old secrets buried.
