In the Chesapeake Bay town of Guineaport, the local watermen keep to themselves and call anyone without deep roots on the bay "Come-Heres." Recently, forcibly, retired FBI Agent Lu Garcia arrives to recover, but finds herself waist deep in a local murder. One less Come-Here, and no one is talking.
When the sheriff stops his investigation with the young girl adopted by the victim, Lu recognizes a set-up and wades in the murky waters of the town's legends, rumors, deceits, and betrayals.
Tides turn. Murders amass. Boats scuttle.
Lu summons her intellect, intuition, and judgment to untangle the duality of small town charm and danger.
All things equal, murder is personal.
