"Fresh from her first murder case, Merry Folger is unwillingly sucked into her second. The daughter of the Nantucket police chief, Merry spent her first case proving to her father and herself that she had what it takes to solve a murder. Now she's more savvy and experienced, but this time one of her friends is involved." "Del Duarte has returned to Nantucket with a baby, but she's keeping quiet about her daughter's parentage. When her own father, Joe, an experienced fisherman, is swept overboard in a spring storm, the death is pronounced accidental. Del thinks it's murder - and when she and her baby receive threatening letters, Merry defies her own father to investigate." "What she finds is a confusing tangle of fraud, murder, and revenge, where the motives are as murky as the bottom in fifty fathoms of water. Torn among her obligations to Del, her responsiblitites to her father, and her growing love for Peter Mason, a quiet and intense farmer, Merry fights on alone - through increasingly rough water."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
