It looked for all the world like a terrible, tragic
accident. Susanna Morgan had gotten up in the middle of the night, tripped,
fallen, and broken her neck. Yet when detective Justin Westwood inspects the
victim’s apartment, he can't help noticing that the details don’t quite add up.
The glass on the bedside table is knocked over but there are no cuts on her
body. The scrape on her knee looks suspiciously fresh. And then a terrified
witness comes forward, confirming his worst fear.
This is no accident. This is murder.
Justin Westwood moved to East End Harbor to escape a dark,
disturbing past, and to lead a quiet life. He had retreated from reality by
taking a menial post with a small-town Long Island police department, drowning
his troubles in mindless traffic duty and lots of booze. Now his dormant
professionalism is awakened after Susanna’s brutal murder. This is just the
kind of reality check that Justin needs, and he will stop at nothing to get to
the bottom of this madness—to find the meaning of the mysterious “Aphrodite”—and
maybe save himself in the process.
