    A little island town is the scene of a conflict between two men of God: the outgoing minister of the local church and his successor, each known as Jack. But Victoria Trumbull is concerned with a series of unexpected deaths, which turn out to be the result of anonymous food packages left on people's doorsteps. Elderly Victoria's get-up-and-go attitude, her courage, and her exhaustive knowledge of Martha's Vineyard and its people once again help her to discover the truth behind the mystery.

The case naturally falls to Victoria Trumbull, the 92-year-old, sharp-witted sheriff's deputy.

Now the authorities will turn to her again to help uncover another scandal on the idyllic island.

    There's more than one reason why the new West Tisbury police chief officially made 92-year-old Victoria Trumbull her deputy. For one thing, Victoria knows just about everything about everyone in Martha's Vineyard, not to mention their ancestors. She may be 92, but she is as sharp and as sharp-eyed as the proverbial tack. So when Victoria is the only one who spots something amiss among the gravestones of the West Tisbury cemetery, it's no surprise that the police chief listens.
