It wasn't anything special, or too much surprising, just a solid, regular mystery that took up a couple hours of my life. Not bad, not awesome, a solid three. ( )

Book description
Lewis Cole writes a column for 'Shoreline', a tourist rag in Tyler, New Hampshire. He lives in an old cottage by the ocean..and keeps a loaded .357 Smith & Wesson in his kitchen. He has a past, one he'd rather forget, and writing is just his day job. A female corpse, buried for forty years in the sand, has only now been found.

More than death ties the two bodies together, and Cole is uniquely situated to make the connection.
