(2006)
(The first book in the FBI / Ireland series)
A novel by

 
 
From New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers comes the gripping story of one woman's determination to solve the unsolvable case: her husband's murder.

Four days after Abigail Browning's wedding, her life changed in a way she never expected: her husband was shot, meeting his death along the rocky Mount Desert Island coast. Was it a random act of violence, or could someone have wanted Christopher dead?

That's the question that has haunted Abigail, now a homicide detective, for the past seven years. As determined as ever to find her husband's killer, she returns to the foggy Maine island -- and the home she has inherited there -- after receiving an anonymous tip. Is it just another false lead by someone looking for attention? Or can she finally prove that his death was tied to something that happened that night . . . and that he was murdered?

As the search-and-rescue worker who located Chris too late to save him, Owen Garrison still carries guilt from that fateful night. Constantly on the go as an expert in his field, he's back in Maine for the summer. Right from the start, Abigail's presence ruffles feathers among the islanders. Owen sees she's not the same woman she was seven years ago. As he helps her unravel the mystery, they learn that the layers of deceit and lies are even thicker than they could have imagined.

They're convinced that Chris was killed because he got too close to the truth and that the danger he faced isn't in the past -- it's here and now. And it's up to Abigail and Owen to keep pushing for the truth . . . to stop a killer from striking again . . .
