The war between the McFalls and the Drinkwaters had taken a nasty turn: someone had dynamited a reservoir, depriving the Drinkwaters' Double D ranch of its precious water supply. And Aaron McFall's eldest son George was found dead at the site, apparently killed in the blast. It looked as though George had been the victim of his own plan for wanton destruction, but his old friend Conan Flagg thought otherwise. Sensing mysteries beyond the immediate tragedy, Conan began to search for both families' secrets and found that revenge was but one motive for murder. There were also romantic entanglements to consider, and something frightening and unnameable as well

I'LL BE ON YOUR PATIO AT FOUR O'CLOCK. IF YOU AREN'T THERE, I'LL UNDERSTAND ... This is the gist of the mysterious plea for help that Conan Flagg finds lying on the counter of his Holliday Beach Book Shop. The writer is beautiful Isadora Canfield, a concert pianist and daughter of the late Oregon Senator John Canfield, in whose will she would become a millionairess. Isadora wants Conan to find out who is keeping her under twenty-four-hour surveillance, but she becomes strangely quiet when asked for details of her father's death and of how she had spent the weeks following. In fact she is disinclined to talk about the family at all--not her blind stepmother or her irrepressible stepbrother or her sadly altered stepsister, Jenny, who had once been a promising artist. Conan soon realizes that he and his gifted client are sitting on dynamite. He thinks he knows who has the matches, but he can't be sure. And proving it, is dangerous work, even for a pro like Flagg
