Cassie Mitchell is all set to marry her fiancé, Daniel Benjamin, at the Bluffs, an old Victorian mansion in Whale Rock, Cape Cod, an estate she inherited from her family. Unfortunately, a deadly storm is about to descend on the coast at the peak of tourist season, forcing the couple to postpone their wedding. Yet this turns out to be the least of Cassie’s worries, as she finds the body of Lee Chambers, a known drug dealer, behind a dumpster at a local restaurant. Shortly thereafter, three-year-old Lucas Kleister goes missing. And all the while, Cassie receives cryptic, supernatural messages from her dead great-grandparents Percy and Celeste, pointing to something sinister surrounding the local legend of “Barnacle Boy,” who vanished during a storm years before. Are the incidents related?
VERDICT Marion’s strong second installment in this series (after House of Ashes) will draw in readers with a penchant for mysteries with a supernatural twist and great characters cast in a fascinating setting.
