So when Brandon decided to open a pizza restaurant, Molly was supportive--not because she wanted him to do it, but because the idea was so far-fetched that she didn't think he would. Before she knew it, he'd signed a lease on a space. The restaurant, Delancey, was going to be a reality, and all of Molly's assumptions about her marriage were about to change.

And then newcomer Lacey Havnel and her daughter Bea move in. They are nothing like the well-heeled families who populate Evening Lake. Mysterious, rough-around-the edges, they keep to themselves. Detective Harry Jordan sees his lake home as a respite from solving crimes on the streets of Boston. One night, Harry Jordan is walking the lake when the night is rocked by an explosion: the Havnel house is engulfed in a conflagration and young Bea Havnel is seen fleeing, hair on fire, plunging into the lake. She survives but her mother does not, and Harry is pulled into the investigation. As is Diz Osborne, the youngest Osborne son who, unbeknownst to any of them, carries a weighty secret about who else he saw rowing on the lake that night. When it's discovered that Lacey Havnel died not from the explosion but from a knife wound, it's soon clear that a murderer is on the loose. And this murderer is poised to strike again, and again.

Riley Brodin is the granddaughter of Walter Muehlenhaus--a man as rich, powerful, and connected as anyone since the days of J. P. Morgan. Despite her family's connections, it's McKenzie she reaches out to when her relatively new boyfriend goes missing. Despite his reservations about getting involved with the Muehlenhaus family, McKenzie agrees to look for one Juan Carlos Navarre. What he finds, though, is a man who appears to be a ghost. The house--mansion, really--he told Riley he owned is actually a rental, barely lived in and practically devoid of personal effects. The restaurant he claimed to own is owned by another and Navarre merely an investor. He apparently has no friends, no traceable past, and McKenzie isn't the only one looking for him. Whoever Juan Carlos Navarre is and wherever he's gone, the one thing that is clear is that he's trouble, and is perhaps someone--as Riley's family makes clear--better out of the picture. Unfortunately for everyone, McKenzie likes trouble and trouble likes him.
