For Rina Martin, the sleepy seaside town of Frantham is the perfect place to retire from a successful acting career and open a cozy boardinghouse. For transplanted detective Sebastian "Mac" McGregor, it's a place to forget a recent tragedy. But when murder strikes, Rina and Mac discover that behind Frantham's quiet facade lie some dangerous secrets.
Who would savagely beat to death a harmless old lady? Somehow, the victim was connected to two locals: a troubled teenage boy and his protective older sister. The return of their abusive father brings chaos and danger back into their lives. When another murder occurs, Mac and Rina -- who picked up a few tricks playing a detective on television -- connect the dots. But as a disturbing picture of violence, terror and desperate acts emerges, it's hard to sort the criminals from the victims....
