Karen Walker is an ex-homicide detective slowly recovering from the trauma of an automobile accident in which she was injured and her husband was killed when a drunk driver struck the car she was operating. After a year of surgeries and attempts to come to terms with her feelings of guilt, she finds herself living the narrow life of a semi-recluse.

Her seclusion comes to an end when an old friend from college, Clarissa Hammett, asks Karen to help in the search for her missing sister, Justine. Karen agrees, and she goes to live alone in the family’s summer home on the coast of southern Maine, which Justine was occupying at the time of her disappearance. Karen even goes one step further and takes on Justine’s job as hostess in a local restaurant, hoping to learn more about the missing woman’s life from her co-workers.

Conversations with the sister’s estranged husband, her present boyfriend, and a mentally disturbed young girl on the beach, lead Karen to believe that Justine’s disappearance was not voluntary and that, if still alive, she may desperately need help.

Read an excerpt:

“I heard about what you did to Sam,” she said.

“I didn’t do anything to Sam.”

“You got him involved in your half-assed investigation into Justine’s disappearance and got him hurt. You didn’t think I’d find out so soon, but you forget, I have contacts everywhere in town. Anything that happens, I know about.”

“Sam offered to help me. I didn’t force him to do it.”

“No, you didn’t force him, but you acted nice to him, knowing that Sam was the kind of guy who would always help a woman in distress. He got involved with you the same way he hooked up with Justine because you both needed help. You knew that and took advantage of him.”

About the Author:
I have been a professor of philosophy for over thirty years. Most recently I retired from teaching at a small university in western Massachusetts. For much of that time I have also written mystery and suspense fiction, starting with books for young adults and moving on to writing for adults. I have had twenty-eight books published, fifteen of them in the last fifteen years as time has allowed me to write more. All are cozy in nature and suitable for any reader.

I live in western Massachusetts with my wife. My hobbies include reading (of course) and going to the gym. We also look forward to traveling to Maine and Cape May, New Jersey for our needed dose of the beach.

Buy the book at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
