For ex-Wall Streeter Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree and her teenage son, Sam, September promises tranquil days winter-proofing their rambling handyman’s special of a home in Eastport, Maine. But there’s nothing idyllic about this Down East autumn. For starters, the return of truly vicious native son Reuben Tate stirs up the town. And when somebody slits Reuben’s throat and hangs his corpse on the cemetery gate, the police trace a bloodied scalpel to surgeon Victor Tiptree—Jake’s former husband. Yet Jake knows her troublesome, trouble-prone ex is capable of just about anything except murder. Proving that, though, will involve nailing the real killer. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Ms. Graves has created a bright and personable new detective who has been welcomed into the Eastport community with warmth and affection.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “Graves skillfully…draws out the suspense. Good entertainment.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Small-town cozies feature tiny hamlets that have higher homicide rates than any crime-ridden metropolitan neighborhood! Graves skillfully creates another such town in Eastport, Maine, along with a tight plot, clever idioms, and a horde of eccentric characters. Lindsay Ellison’s narration is crisp, and her delivery of pithy sayings spot-on. She even manages to deliver a down-east accent without slipping into caricature. She chuckles with obvious delight at the dialogue, whispers conspiratorially about dark secrets suitable for blackmail, and expresses her dismay with the new ‘sly, grinning worm in the apple.’ The clever dialogue drives this novel, creating characters sparkling with life.”


Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Francesca Hurley | 2/20/2014

    " yeah, i liked this one. i'm not telling you what it's about though,. it'll spoil it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Marcia | 2/20/2014

    " Terrific mystery series with great home fix-it tips! Whenever I read one of these, I think I should get started on some home repairs. The plot, which basically deals with bullying and its effects, is handled very well. Unltimately, the victim became the bully. Life in a small coastal Maine town still has its dark side. The characters are consistent and believable. Most of the strings are tied up in the end, but still, some aspects are left unanswered. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jodi | 2/14/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. I guess after reading 3 of hers, they are growing on me. This was a great mystery where you never really could pin down any certain suspect because there were so many great ones. Suspense till the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Patti | 1/18/2014

    " This series is possibly going over to the "don't read anymore" list. Jacobia is an amateur sleuth, but by this title, only the 3rd in the series, she is someone the local police and other people in town turn to to solve murders. Why? I may try one more down the road, but I just don't care that much. "
