About this Book:

When murder visits the seemingly sleepy town of Androscoggin, Maine, it lands in the lap of veteran New York Times crime reporter Jack McMorrow, a recent transplant from the city. As McMorrow struggles to find his way in a small, rural town, an undercurrent 
of violence draws him into deep and dangerous waters. A New York Times Notable Paperback.
