Frank Coffin had been a well-respected Baltimore homicide detective. But when he started having panic attacks at crime scenes, he was forced to go home to Cape Cod, where the worst crimes were usually break-ins, bicycle thefts, and domestic disputes. That is, until a vacationing televangelist turns up dead on the beach wearing a wig, a muumuu, and one size-twelve pump. Not to mention the raspberry-colored taffeta scarf strangling his neck.

Frank and his partner, Officer Lola Winters, begin checking out the drag bars and isolated trysting spots the reverend might have frequented. However, when the body count starts to rise, it becomes alarmingly clear that a killer with an agenda is at large in Provincetown. And Coffin's fears - like unwelcome summer tourists - have returned in full force....

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derrick | 1/8/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. I thought the characters were interesting, as was the story. It's especially enjoyable if you know P'Town well at all, as many of the places are recognizable (even if they masked by pseudonyms), as are the characters that populate the town. I'm looking forward to reading the next book(s) in the series. "

    " Very fun read. Detective Frank Coffin moves from Baltimore to Provincetown and works to adjust to life there as a single man. Colorful characters and fun setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hillery | 12/2/2013

    " An easy, enjoyable summer read.....nothing brilliant or significant. Murder mystery set in Provincetown, MA with typical quirky (and almost too quirky) small town characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 10/29/2013

    " Nice twist and an interesting setting- made me laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 9/19/2013

    " A great murder mystery, a fun location, interesting characters, and the man writes like a poet. Who could ask for more? I enjoyed the story immensely and even better, I loved how he phrases things. I was struck on several occasions by his choice of words. Looking forward to more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bette Ammon | 7/27/2013

    " An auspicious beginning for first time novelist Jon Loomis. The setting is a small town on the Massachusetts Cape - the main character is a likeable and gritty detective who doesn't handle death very well. Other characters are memorable; the story keeps you guessing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 7/2/2013

    " I head Jon Loomis on an NPR interview and liked the story of Det Frank Coffey. Lots of characters (most likeable) and the story moves along nicely. The ending came on a bit quickly- but enjoyed the book- two more in the series- "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margery | 5/24/2013

    " OK but someone will have to work harder to replace Philip R. Craig and his detective who lived on Martha's Vineyard. (Frank Coffin is a retired detective living on Cape Cod.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 4/19/2013

    " Very well written. Jon is a UWEC professor who lived and worked in Provincetown, MA, i.e., P-town, the setting of the book. His colorful characters are drawn from the local population. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Damian Serbu | 11/13/2012

    " Good light hearted read, fun for the beach or casual vacation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 10/29/2012

    " I enjoyed reading this book while I was visiting Provincetown but I'm not sure it would have had much appeal otherwise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Crowley | 2/14/2012

    " Mystery set in Provincetown. Decent light reading for vacation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/1/2011

    " Good, basic mystery. Definitely well-written, although the story could have been more compelling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 3/4/2011

    " reminded me of a 2002? book called "P-town" I read. Detective story set in P-town: drinking, sex, murder, drinking, sex, drinking, phobias, sex, drinking, murder, drinking...sounds like the cape to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 1/15/2011

    " More like 3.5. A little like Hiassen, but I think that's just because one always finds interesting people in small beach towns. Set on the Cape, and the atmosphere is good. Characters are very realistic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 12/26/2010

    " I picked this mystery up at the library. The description of Provincetown, MA and people was more interesting than the actual mystery. It wasn't an outstanding read, but entertaining. "
