A Boston lawyer investigates a prep school teacher’s suspicious suicide …

Brady Coyne never meant to become the private lawyer to New England's upper crust, but after more than a decade working for Florence Gresham and her friends, he has developed a reputation for discretion that the rich cannot resist. He is fond of Mrs. Gresham — unflappable, uncouth, and never tardy with a check — and he has seen her through her husband's suicide and her first son's death in Vietnam. But he has never seen her crack until the day her second son, George, leaps into the sea at jagged Charity's Point.

The authorities call it a suicide, but Mrs. Gresham cannot believe her son, like his father, would take his own life. As Brady digs into the apparently blemish-free past of this upper-class prep school history teacher, he finds dark secrets. George Gresham may not have been suicidal, but that doesn't mean he wasn't in trouble.

Glenn Gillman thinks that practical jokes are harmless fun — and they are — that is, until somebody dies.

Before he can unload it though, his car is stolen, and Glenn finds he has a whole new set of problems to worry about.

Things go from bad to worse and before long, Glenn finds himself at the center of a crime spree that includes identity theft, home invasion, embezzlement, and murder. A hired killer named Echo is determined to murder the owner of the Mustang but it turns out that he isn't the only threat Glenn needs to worry about. He soon learns that Echo's strings are being pulled by a deranged City Council Member and a red-headed bombshell with homicidal tendencies.
