In the wake of his wife’s death, Billy Robinson, once a Boston homicide detective, struggles to run the Gloucester, Massachusetts inn he and Siobhan opened together. The eccentric group of residents have become something like a family and, when a drug epidemic threatens their town, they rally to fight back. Will they succeed? Or will the heartless drug dealer who has invaded their town continue his reign of terror?

This stand-alone, with its cast of realistic characters struggling with the vicissitudes of life, keeps the suspense building as the tension continually grows. There’s no guessing about who did what; the bad guy/drug dealer is identified from the beginning. But that’s not a detriment to the telling of the tale. The realism of the fight to free the town of drugs causes some gritty moments. There are also some unexpected plot twists and an intriguing [although a bit predictable] twist on an often-done theme. It’s a quick, but thoroughly enjoyable read.

Haiku summary

Publisher Annotation: The Inn at Gloucester stands alone on the rocky shoreline. Its seclusion suits former Boston police detective Bill Robinson, novice owner and innkeeper. As long as the dozen residents pay their rent, Robinson doesn't ask any questions. Neither does Sheriff Clayton Spears, who lives on the second floor. Then Mitchell Cline arrives, with a deadly new way of doing business. His crew of local killers break laws, deal drugs, and bring violence to the doors of the Inn. That's when Robinson realizes, with the help of journalist Susan Solie, that leaving the city is no escape from the reality of evil -- or the responsibility for action. Teaming up with Sheriff Spears and two fearless residents -- Army veteran Nick Jones and groundskeeper Effie Johnson -- Robinson begins a risky defense. The solitary inhabitants of the Inn will have to learn, before time runs out, that their only choice is between standing together -- or dying alone. 384pp., 500K
