Lenore Featherjohn found the girl, frozen against a snow bank behind Lenore’s bed-and-breakfast. Some said she was a ghost, others said an angel. Lenore knows better. Fearing that the police might look to her sons as murderers, she hires Jake Rikker and his crusty business partner May, to investigate the suspicious circumstances surrounding her undesirable discovery. Their search leads them not to the strange girl—or to Earth’s final days, as many in the town suspect—but to Amy McLaren, the wife of the Stone Church’s minister. As Jake and May get closer to the truth, the tension between Lenore and Amy rises, forcing each woman to face the secrets they’ve hidden far too long.
PI Jake Rikker has been retained to find a stalker, a challenge that could help redeem his life-if he doesn't lose it first. A private investigator, kayak adventurer, and whale watching tour guide who specializes in salvage operations based out of an old, purple church, Jake is caught off guard by the request of his new client. Up-and-coming jewelry designer Elise St. Dennis wants him to find not a valuable object, but the menacing ex-con who has traced her to the small town of Fog Point.
