Synopsis: Welcome to the winter shores of 1882 Cape Cod, a world of shipwreck and quick death and a race to find a treasure that will change the course of a young America coming into its own. When a ship sinks in a storm, its secret dying on the lips of a child, a catastrophic chain of events is set in motion as Keeper Daniel Cole and his fellow lifesavers pursue a philosophical killer, a mooncusser who walks a stoic horse along the ridgeline of the Cape's towering beach cliffs, bending fate to his aims. Hope and despair, love and loss, sacrifice and sin, riddle and answer, blur and intertwine in a tale that calls into question mankind's moral compass, and the very nature of progress and civilization.

Book Description iUniverse, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.When the Asia, a two-masted schooner, sinks in a storm along the harsh winter shores of Cape Cod in 1882, the crew, the captain, and the captain s young daughter are cast into the midnight sea. Swept ashore, the Asia s captain survives-only to meet a mysterious end before he can be rescued. Meanwhile, his child makes landfall and dies not far away. With dawn s arrival, all that remains are the jagged hulk of the Asia and the whispers of a secret. So begins a race to find a history-altering treasure-a contest that pits Daniel Cole, keeper of the lifesaving station, and his fellow Peaked Hill Bars lifesavers against a philosophical killer. This mooncusser, an author of shipwrecks, walks a stoic horse along the ridgeline of the Cape s towering beach cliffs, bending fate to his aims. Hope and despair, love and loss, sacrifice and sin, riddle and answer all blur and intertwine in a tale that calls into question the validity of humanity s moral compass and the very nature of progress and civilization.
