About the Book

It is 1910 along the rain drenched coast of  Washington state. Felton Connelly is trying to run from a past that haunts him. A past that took the lives of his wife and two children. His dedication to being a police officer kept him from being there that night to save his family. He vowed to never do police work again.

Until his friend Nolan Delford, an Aberdeen, Washington detective talks him into working undercover. A reluctant but capable Connelly agrees to aid Delford in his quest to bring one Billy Gohl, an Aberdeen thug, to justice. Gohl is suspected of murder and dumping the bodies into Grays Harbor. Many of the corpses have surfaced in the harbor with empty pockets, heads bashed in, and a bullet hole between the eyes.

Two women vie for Connelly’s attention. One of great beauty, the other a plain but strong young widow with two sons whose husband was done away with by Billy Gohl.

Not only must Connelly bring Gohl to justice, but he also must choose which woman he wants. If his haunted past doesn’t get in the way.
