Synopsis

Steeped in island lore, this century-spanning double mystery pits a renegade fishing community against an unhappy child-bride of the 1820s, a conflicted twenty-first century teenager, and a hard-drinking botanist whose arrival on-island triggers a string of murders linked to an old diary whose secrets threaten to tear the island apart.

Reviews
"The best male protagonist to come along since Lee Child's Jack Reacher!"-- Cruising World Magazine

"Scott's prose crackles with energy, and her sense of place is superb. The kind of book readers will tear through, only to find themselves hungry for more." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A tightly wrapped, exciting and suspenseful mystery hit." -- Kennebec Journal

"Scott...has a keen sense of humor, a knack for carefully woven plots, and a gift for creating vividly colorful, convincing characters. Put all that together, and she is a very entertaining storyteller." -- New Maine Times

"Matinicus is a must for modern literary fiction collections looking for something a bit offbeat." -- Midwest Book Review
