Four days after Abigail Browning's wedding, her life changed unimaginably: her husband was shot, meeting his death along the rocky Mount Desert Island coast. Was it a random act of violence, or could someone have wanted Christopher dead?

That's the question that has haunted Abigail, now a homicide detective, for the past seven years. Determined to fi nd her husband's killer, she returns to the foggy Maine island after receiving an anonymous tip. Is it just another false lead, or can she fi nally prove that Chris was murdered?

As the search-and-rescue worker who located Chris too late to save him, Owen Garrison still carries guilt from that fateful night. Right from the start, Abigail's presence on Mount Desert Island ruffl es feathers, but Owen sees she's not the same woman she was seven years ago. As he helps her unravel the mystery, they learn that the layers of deceit and lies are even thicker than they could have imagined. Now it's up to Abigail and Owen to keep pushing for the truth--and stop a killer from striking again....

This is the second book that I have read by Carla Neggers. I really like the way she writes. You don't know who is the killer until the end. The story points to more than one person until the end. I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
