When Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree left behind her high-powered, high-risk career on Wall Street for the charming town of Eastport, Maine, she expected a quiet life spent fixing up her 1823 Federal-style house. But there are skeletons in her closet that may prove beyond repair ... Suddenly the perils of the stock market pale in comparison to the murder, mayhem, and mystery of remodeling.
Summer is slowly coming to Eastport, and Jake has a new project in the works: building a dock at her lakeside cottage. Loaded down with tools and supplies, she and her best friend, Ellie White, are on their way to start the job when they run into one of Jake's old New York City pals.
Wiseguy Jemmy Wechsler once took Jake under his wing - and now it's time for Jake to return the favor. There's a hit out on Jemmy, and the man on his tail isn't merely your run-of-the-mill hired killer. He's the East Coast's most feared professional. And he just happens to live in Eastport ...
Jemmy wants to end his ordeal once and for all ... even it means confronting the killer on his own turf. And Jake's cottage is the perfect hideout while he plans his next move. But the body Jake and Ellie find dangling at the end of a rope in the hit man's barn throws a wrench into all their plans - big time.
Accused of stalking the hired killer's daughter, the victim apparently committed suicide. Only Jake believes otherwise. Her remodeling instincts may fail her now and then, but as a former money manager to the mob, she knows how the bad guys think. There's more to this story than anyone's telling, and she's about to risk her life exposing the truth. Only, she'd better do it fast, before a smart, ruthless killer ensnares her in a trap she can't escape.
