About this title
Eastport, the little harbor village on the inner crook of Cape Cod's elbow, hasn't had a murder in over half a century. Now, the death of a newcomer has the community reeling in shock. When the prominent and much loved scientist Maurice Tomlinson dies of anaphylactic shock from bee stings -- at a time of the year when bees are dormant -- many suspect foul play. Soon, Police Chief Dan Burke is on the prickly case and enlists the aid of his childhood friend, Brother Bartholomew of Faith Abbey. The mounting evidence is as thick as the local chowder, but Brother Bartholomew has brought his appetite for solving crime.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

At its edge, a family of ducks, ravenously hungry, foraged for kernels strewn on the lwn. Two ducklings found morsels around twin obstructions protruding from the pond's green scuma pair of khaki-clad lower legs that ended in white running shoes with "Nike" stamped on their soles. . . .
