    • Abstract:
      Summary: "A storm-struck island. A blood-soaked bed. A missing man. Senior Investigator Shana Merchant believes it all adds up to a killer in their midst--and that murder is a family affair. Thirteen months ago, former NYPD detective Shana Merchant barely survived being abducted by a serial killer. Now hoping to leave grisly murder cases behind, she's taken a job in her fiancé's sleepy hometown in the Thousand Islands region of Upstate New York. But as a nor'easter bears down on her new territory, Shana and fellow investigator Tim Wellington receive a call about a man missing on a private island. Shana and Tim travel to the isolated island owned by the wealthy Sinclair family to question the witnesses. They arrive to find blood on the scene and a house full of Sinclair family and friends on edge. While Tim guesses they're dealing with a runaway case, Shana is convinced that they have a murder on their hands. As the gale intensifies outside, she starts conducting interviews and discovers the Sinclairs and their guests are crawling with dark and dangerous secrets. Trapped on the island by the raging storm with only Tim whose reliability is thrown into question, the increasingly restless suspects, and her own trauma-fueled flashbacks for company, Shana will have to trust the one person her abduction destroyed her faith in--herself. But time is ticking down, because if Shana's right, a killer is in their midst and as the pressure mounts, so do the odds that they'll strike again"-- Provided by publisher.

As a nor'easter rears up against New York State's Thousand Islands region, NYPD Detective Shana Merchant and her new partner, Tim Wellington, respond to a missing-persons report from a private island. Jasper Sinclair, an heir to Sinclair Textiles, has vanished from a family gathering that included his grandmother, his siblings, and their significant others. After a fruitless search of the island, Norton, the caretaker, shows them Jasper's room where the bed is soaked with a large bloodstain. Assuming that Jasper couldn't have survived, Merchant corrals the family under Wellington's watchful eye and begins solo interviews. It doesn't take much prodding to uncover a truckload of motives among the Sinclairs' financial deceits, infidelities, and festering jealousies. Then, when Jasper's grief-stricken girlfriend is strangled during a brief relaxation of their supervision, Shana fights to control her panicked realization that the killer has gained the upper hand. This locked-room thriller has all of the requisite tangled motives and deductive crime-solving, along with a riveting introduction to edgy survivor Shana and Tim, her steady, easygoing foil.

In the prologue of Wegert's solid debut, former NYPD homicide detective Shana Merchant, who's recovering from a traumatic incident, meets with therapist Carson Gates. Merchant was involved in a serial killer case in Manhattan in which three women were killed after dating a man they met online, Blake Bram, who happened to be from her hometown, Swanton, Vt. Flash forward 13 months. Merchant is now engaged to Gates and working for the New York State Park Police in a part of the state "where violent crime doesn't exist. Until, one day, it does." On an island in the St. Lawrence River, Jasper Sinclair, the scion of a prominent family that made its wealth in the fashion industry, and his girlfriend, Abella Beaudry, go to bed one night. The next morning, Beaudry wakes up to find Sinclair gone and the sheets soaked with blood. Merchant investigates as a big storm closes in. Wegert maintains suspense by gradually parceling out her lead's backstory and how Bram ties in with the Sinclair case. Fans of golden age closed circle murder mysteries will enjoy this effective update. Agent: Marlene Stringer, Stringer Literary. (Feb.)
