Florida, 1884. It's a new year and Cassie Gwynne is determined to be done with the unseemly business of murder. Unfortunately, fate has other plans . . . The very next day, she happens upon the body of a newcomer to town-customs collector Chester Pence-floating beneath the boardwalk.
Never one to shy away from a puzzle, Cassie can't resist getting involved in the investigation. It's no secret that Chester made a number of enemies in his short time in Fernandina: confiscating a beleaguered bride's wedding dress and a bossy businessman's cigars among many other mean acts. It's even rumored a well-to-do lady with a pampered dog has been leaving him nasty little parcels on his doorstep, but would she stoop as low as murder?
Cassie's only just gotten started on her suspect list when a witness comes forward and accuses one of Cassie's close friends, Mr. Hu, of the crime. Much to her surprise, he confesses. She is convinced he is innocent. Is Mr. Hu protecting someone?
Cassie continues to investigate, but when she returns home one day to find her aunt's beautiful house completely ransacked, she knows it's a warning. Can Cassie uncover the truth, or will the killer ensure this is her final case?
