Synopsis

A skeleton is discovered on a bone-chillingly cold Siasconset beach by two children playing on the windswept sands. Is the dead woman the latest victim of a killer who has already preyed upon five women in Massachusetts? Or could the half-buried corpse be the beautiful Harvard-educated psychiatrist whose disappearance baffled Nantucket police? And if so, how is that mystery linked to the sensational disappearance of the flamboyant sculptor Ian Markham, who vanished in his boat, A Mood Indigo, that very same morning, seven years ago?

As the FBI and the media swarm over the island, Nantucket police detective Merry Folger finds herself caught in the web of old passions and crimes, a web whose net continues to ensnare victims. For whoever the dead woman may be, her murder is a death that, like all shocking events in the past, has repercussions in the present. Deadly repercussions.
