Abstract:

"A woman trying to outrun her past is drawn to a quiet coastal town in Maine--and to a string of unsolved murders--in this haunting tale of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen."--

After an unspeakable tragedy, Ava Collette flees from Boston to a remote village in Maine, and rents an old house named Brodie's Watch. The isolated seaside mansion is peaceful-- until she glimpses the long-dead sea captain who still resides there. One night Ava confronts the apparition of Captain Jeremiah Brodie. He feels all too real, and he welcomes her into his world-- and into his arms. Even as Ava questions her own sanity, she looks forward to the captain's ghostly visits. But she learns that every woman who has ever lived in Brodie's Watch has also died there. Is the ghost of Captain Brodie responsible, or is a flesh-and-blood killer at work? -- adapted from jacket
