One woman's murder and a bottle washed ashore on the St. Anastasia beach open a Pandora's box and unleash secrets pursued by an entire camping resort . . . and the truth proves as elusive as the killer in their midst. Newlyweds David and Laura Jennings have chosen the lifestyle of full-time RV'ing. Their first destination is Anastasia Island in St. Augustine, Florida.
