A toxic oil spill. Mysterious remains. And one man on a mission to reveal the truth at all costs.

"One of the most sharply plotted mysteries of the season." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

When a noxious oil spill pollutes the picturesque beaches of Tyler, New Hampshire, local reporter Lewis Cole is determined to get to the bottom of it. But his investigation takes a sinister turn when a decapitated body washes up on shore.

Then a slew of Winslow Homer paintings go missing and Lewis can't help but sense a connection within the recent spate of bizarre occurrences.

Haunted by past traumas and driven by a need for justice, Lewis delves deep into the town's darkest secrets, uncovering a web of lies and corruption that threatens to consume him. Every clue is a small piece to an even bigger puzzle, and Lewis is struggling to see the full picture.

But he won't rest until he finds the thread that connects it all.and pulls.
