Overview

A chilling tale of murder unfolds during a fierce September hurricane on the Maine coast in this haunting story of two deaths mysteriously bound together by the long reach of time.

As Hurricane Ivan bears down on the coast, the crew of the Maine Wind retrieves the body of a young woman from the sea. Who is she and how did she die? The search for the woman's identity thrusts Homicide Detective Brie Beaumont into an investigation on Apparition Island in the aftermath of the violent storm. A verdict of undetermined death begs the question: Was this an accidental drowning; did Claire Whitehall commit suicide, or was she murdered? As a baffling investigation unfolds, Brie is drawn back into a decades old cold case--one that has cast its shadow into the present, where she could become its next victim.

In LeClair’s sparkling fourth Windjammer mystery (after 2013’s Cold Coast), Minneapolis PD homicide detective Brie Beaumont, who’s on a leave of absence, winds up serving as the second mate aboard the Maine Wind. With a hurricane moving up the Maine coast, the sailboat’s captain opts to head for anchorage at Apparition Island, where Brie spots a body floating offshore. A local man identifies the victim as Claire Whitehall, a freelance journalist gathering material for a story on the “lobster wars” on the outer islands. A chance discovery leads Brie, now attached to the Maine State Police, to a link between Claire’s death and that of Blythe Danes Whitehall, a beautiful but insecure woman murdered on the island in 1958. Prying information from the tight-knit islanders is both difficult and dangerous, and long-festering secrets threaten to claim Brie as another victim. LeClair handles the island’s rugged terrain and its rugged inhabitants equally well. (Mar.)
