From the Inside Flap:

A small-town cop and a sixty-year-old murder mystery form the basis for this story. It's 1997 and crime in shoreline Connecticut is minimal. Gordy Powell is a Guilford policeman living a seemingly idyllic life on his tiny farm in the nearby town of Clinton. He deals with an occasional robbery, car theft, some accidents and a fair share of runaways. Life is good, until Annie Martin's SUV breaks through the ice and sinks in Gordy's pond during a winter storm. As Annie's father, a powerful senator, succeeds in getting the pond drained in order to straighten Nod Road, a second car, a vintage Chrysler is discovered. Inside the wreck is the murdered remains of a doctor who went missing in 1938. Gordy Powell partners with the granddaughter of the deceased doctor and they begin to work with local police and town officials to solve the mystery. Their activity sets the stage for the formation their relationship as well as the reopening of long forgotten wounds. The careful application of methodical police work unwittingly results in a spate of new murders and the evidence begins to yield a list of suspects. Soon it becomes clear the killer of 60 years ago is still around and willing to do anything to avoid exposure. Finally, Gordy and Emily discover the identity of killer. He's in his eighties and has lived among them, undiscovered, for more than sixty years. As the story unfolds, he's determined to continue killing if necessary. The final confrontation between the killer and Gordy leads to a devastating conclusion.
