In tiny Murphy's Harbour, where Reid Bennett serves as the one-man police force, questions and dead bodies tend to pile up all at once. The morning starts with Reid chasing off a gang of threatening teens with a baseball bat. Minutes later, Reid learns that a bank robber might be headed his way looking for vengeance. But, the day doesn't really start rolling until Reid finds a dead woman in the trunk of a waterlogged car. What follows is a fast-paced thriller involving rich lawyers, a questionable movie producer and quite a few shifting identities. Everyone seems to be circling everyone else in a complicated orbit of sex and money. Can all these events be tied together? Just an everyday mystery for Reid Bennett, except that with his wife about to have a baby, the danger feels real and much closer to home. Can Reid and his police dog Sam connect all the dots before death shows up at his doorstep? Author Ted Wood keeps the action crisp and the nerves on edge in this latest Reid Bennett mystery.
