"I''d rather laugh in bad taste than cry in good taste."
That?s how Josie Marshall deals with the death of her detective
husband, Gabe, found naked outside their home on the beach with a
bullet in his brain. Everyone calls it suicide. Josie knows it
isn?t . . . but fears it could be. After all, she had provided Gabe
with a motive. The clues are so strong that even Josie begins to
believe Gabe shot himself. But when a horrific slaying occurs
literally at her feet, she knows Gabe was murdered, and her
determination to prove it carries her toward dark corners of the
beach strip and exposes the darker sides of its residents. Fending
off her fears with humour and outrage, she encounters a drug-crazed
drifter, an organized-crime boss with romance on his mind, a woman
with a murderous past and a pervert who?s been frequenting her
garden shed. When a chance remark leads Josie to the astonishing
truth of Gabe?s death, her story takes a shocking turn that no one
could have seen coming.
