A Provincetown Mystery

Sinopsis

Sydney Riley's much-anticipated stretch of relaxation between theme weeks is doomed from the start: Her parents, ensconced at the Race Point Inn, expect her to play tour guide. Wealthy adventurer Guy Husband has reappeared, seeking help regaining the affections of her best friend, Mirela. And the body of a kidnapped businessman has washed up under MacMillan Wharf.




Sydney is literally at sea (by far not her favorite place), juggling friends and family to indulge her supersized curiosity. Is the murder the work of a regional gang led by the infamous "Codfather" or the result of a feud within an influential Provincetown family? What's Guy Husband's connection? And why does Sydney's boyfriend Ali suddenly insist on visiting-especially while her mother is in town?




Master of crime Jeannette de Beauvoir brings her unique blend of irony and intrigue to this humorous-and at times unsettling-convergence of friends, family, and fatality.
