Publisher's Summary

On a weekend vacation with her brother and niece, Beth Anderson is unnerved when a stroll on the beach reveals what appears to be a skull, and instantly recalls the retired couple who disappeared off the island's coast a few months earlier. When a stranger approaches, Beth panics and covers the evidence. But when she later returns to the beach, the skull is gone.

With only her niece as a witness, there is no proof of foul play for Beth to bring to the authorities. To her brother, the missing skull is just a good story to tell at an island bonfire and campout that night.

The tale is heard by an eager group of vacationers - including charismatic Keith Henson, the stranger from the beach. Everyone dismisses the events as the product of an overactive imagination, but when Beth hears someone outside her tent, she instinctively knows her fears are justified.

Determined to find solid evidence to bring to the police, Beth digs deeper into the mystery of the skull - and everywhere she goes, Keith Henson seems to appear. He claims to be keeping an eye on her safety, but Beth senses other motives.

Then a body washes ashore, and Beth begins to think she needs more help than she bargained for - because investigating is a dangerous game, and someone wants to stop Beth from playing.

Entertaining but typical

This story is the equivalent of a Lifetime Orginal Movie for women. Suspense combined with a sappy love story and a weak ending. But it was entertaining! It kept me going through my commute. At first I didn't like the narrator, but she grew on me. So overall its a good story to pass time.

Not her best...

[{ "id" : 53, "type" : "Overall", "typeString" : "overall", "question" : "Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?", "answer" : "Not really. Not Heather Graham's best work. Found the story to be a bit boring and the narrator was the same. Not bad, but not good." }, { "id" : 9, "type" : "Story", "typeString" : "story", "question" : "Would you be willing to try another book from Heather Graham?

Even under her other name Shannon Drake." }, { "id" : 28, "type" : "Performance", "typeString" : "performance", "question" : "What three words best describe Joyce Bean’s performance?", "answer" : "Can't think of three words.
