A fast-moving plot, vivid local color, and plenty of action characterize this mystery/ adventure novel set in the fictional town of Eagle Harbor on the "quiet side" of Mt. Desert Island.

A seemingly routine evening's duty for Sheriff's Department patrolman Jimmy Hoitt quickly develops into a complex investigation when the victim of a hit-and-run turns out to have been in the Federal Witness Protection Program. Resourceful but sometimes overeager, Hoitt learns some hard lessons about dealing with ruthless criminals and tough law enforcement agencies. High-speed chases, a terror-filled hour with Jimmy as the target of a sniper, and heart-stopping moments on the cliffs of Cadillac Mountain keep the plot line humming.
