When Allie Grainger inherits her aunt's Cape Canaveral beach house, she wants time to mourn her aunt's death and her own failed marriage, but she hasn't been back in town twenty-four hours before she stumbles on the body of a woman floating in the water at the Canaveral jetty. At first, it seems that the only thing that links the victim to Allie is her appearance.
But when her police friends begin to connect the murder with a string of similar crimes up and down the coast of Florida, other similarities begin to emerge. They all were about the same age, blonde, and divorced. And they all looked like Allie.
Three men enter Allie's life: one is a childhood friend all grown up and turned cop; another, the editor of the local paper; and the third is a stranger who shows up on the beach the day the body is found. Allie is pretty sure one of them is the killer, and she begins to suspect she might be his next target. Summoning up courage that surprises even her, Allie begins trying to discover the truth.
But when the bullets start flying, Allie doesn't know which way to turn.
