As Ellie Pincrest, logo designer, escapes Manhattan on a four-seater seaplane to her grandmother’s estate in a quaint seaside village on Long Island, she speaks briefly with a rude young man. Less than 24 hours later, he washes ashore with an initial medical examiner’s assessment of “It looks like he just swam himself to death.” It’s what’s in the dead man’s pockets, the company he kept, and the proximity to her grandmother’s estate that gets Ellie involved in this unique mystery. As the misdirection, chicanery, threats, and intrigue pile up, can Ellie get out of her predicament alive?
