Some mysteries are best left dead...

In the chill, choppy waters of Newport Cove, Doug Sandow watched helplessly as his best friend slipped beyond the boundary of breath and death, sinking into a restless mausoleum, never to be seen again. A dozen years later, Doug returns to Maine, not to mark the passing of his friend—long since faded from thought—but to partake of a romantic, week-long vacation with his wife, Jillian.

The hopes they carry are simple: a time of relaxation and intimacy, a renewal of their marriage, and the pregnancy that Jillian has longed for. As they settle into the creaky charm of the century-old Pequot Hotel, their peaceful seclusion is disrupted by the appearance of Meeka, a self-described “Alewife,” and the years-ago recipient of an evening’s rivalry between teenaged Doug and Brian. A contest that Doug won and almost cashed in on—after she offered herself to him the next day—only to have their tryst interrupted by Brian’s untimely demise.

Meeka, waitress and witness; Doug never saw her again either.

Until now.


Writer, editor, illustrator, educator-Jason is most at home making things or teaching. He takes his coffee black and his beer blacker. You'll find him most days doing the former while consuming the latter. Oh, and he was once punched, a single time and very lightly, by Muhammad Ali.
