"On Eve's fortieth birthday, just when she has begun divorce proceedings, she finds herself faced with an unpleasant choice." "Eve is a partner in a New York ad agency. Without the new campaign she is to head, the agency is in trouble. But Eve's conscience won't let her pitch the cigarette account with any conviction, if at all. Her partner urges her not to quit, but to take time off and think it over." "Fortuitously, an invitation from her widowed aunt Lillian, a real-estate broker in a small community on Maryland's Magothy River, brings Eve to the peaceful Chesapeake Bay area, light years away from the midtown Manhattan advertising scene. "Quiet," Eve thinks. "Rural. No stress."" "One never knows. No sooner does she arrive than there is a distressing death. Her aunt confesses that she asked Eve down for more reasons than she had indicated, and Eve suspects she is hiding more. And a twenty-five-year-old mystery soon becomes very much of the moment again as other first puzzling, then tragic events take place."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
