Synopsis: A Doc Adams Mystery.
Doc's old medical school chum and one-time drinking buddy, Jonathan Randolph, calls up one cold January night to invite Doc to pay him a visit on Cape Cod. Not long after the awkward reunion, Doc's presence is once again requested -- at an autopsy. A man has been found shot to death next door to where Doc and Jonathan met. Doc immediately recognizes the dead man as George Brenner, another friend from the past. And Randolph has disappeared without a trace. Is Doc's old friend the murderer . . . or the next victim?

From Publishers Weekly:
In his Doc Adams stories, Edgar-winner Boyer ( Billingsgate Shoal ) calls on cozily familiar characters, strong local color and good guys who are indisputably on the right side; at the same time he occasionally slips into smugness and boosterism. This time Doc and his wife Mary are invited to a late autumn Cape Cod party given by an old med-school chum who has made it big in Texas. During a stroll on the beach, the Adamses think they hear a shot from a deserted mansion, but the house seems empty when they investigate. A few weeks later, a body, shot, is found in the house, which belongs to mega-rich Northrop Chesterton; the victim turns out to be a former neighbor of Doc's on the mainland. A long, complicated tale involving more murder, drug dealing, gay and interracial sex and secret identities unfolds to a fairly satisfactory end. While drawbacks include Doc's dumb amateur-dick stunts, putting him in peril, and a silly soap opera-ish situation with a pretty girl, Boyer brings this adventure to a fairly satisfactory end.
