Signal Port, California, has seen its share of tragedy. But when the body of an unidentified woman washes up at nearby Point Deception, its nightmare begins again. Who is the unfortunate victim, and will her murder go unsolved, just like the murders of two local families more than 13 years ago? To journalist Guy Newberry, it's more than another story. To sheriff Rhoda Swift, it's the final straw that could destroy her town. Then more women are murdered, and suddenly Newberry and Swift have no choice but to pool their resources, racing against the clock to catch a killer whose motives are not as random as they seem.

About the Author

Marcia Muller, novelist, short-story writer and anthologist, was born in Detroit in 1944. She attended the University of Michigan, where she studied writing. Edwin of the Iron Shoes (1977) was her first book featuring Sharon McCone, a female private eye strong enough to compete in the male-dominated crime genre. In 1993, Muller was given the Private Eye Writers of America Life Achievement Award, and the following year her novel Wolf in the Shadows won the Anthony Boucher Award and was nominated for the Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Crime Novel. Marcia Muller lives in Petaluma, California. Her latest fiction novel is entitled, Locked In.
