About the book:
Meg Riley thought the stress and complexity of her life would ease once she retired
from her job as a rescue swimming instructor for the Coast Guard. A short time into her retirement Meg finds herself face to face with her faithful companion, Tommy, his face smeared with blood. Meg’s physical and emotional strength is put to the test as she struggles to find the answers that will free her and a killer’s daughter from suspicion of murder. A drug smuggling operation, ties to Nazi Germany, Albany Slip pottery, and the disappearance of a sect of monks are a few of the obstacles Meg must overcome to help solve the murder. Her struggle is further complicated by her feelings for Hugh Doherty, the primary State Police investigator in the murder case.
