This book starts in the middle of the action and then gives you the background. However, once you get past the confusing beginning, there's quite a story here. Two guys in the navy ( Gordy Steadman and
Todd Corwin) meet a girl ( Julie) at a dance. She alternately dates both and they both fall for her. After a whirlwind romance, Gordy marries her. While he's away on assignment, Julie is killed in what's said to be a hit and run, but the circumstances are strange and the eyewitnesses (the Lanskys) are forced to leave town. Seems the car involved
belonged to a family ( the Vollmers) that owns the town and everyone in it.

Gordy returns from active duty overseas to find out Julie's dead and, when he investigates, his shooting is declared a suicide. Todd now investigates, but no one has the balls to tell him what went on except for a former cop who got forced into retirement for asking too many questions.

Todd manages to meet the Vollmers and stay at their cottage, but he can never be sure if they know who he is or his
connection to the people who were killed.
Gail Vollmer is the voluptuous daughter. Her stepmother Joy is just two years older than her, likes the same men, and often sunbathes without a stitch on. She
is an animal just waiting to be uncaged. Matt Vollmer, the brother, jokes around with loaded guns. Yet, Todd knew that, if they meant to kill you, they would and nothing could stop them.
