Overview

The Cape Cod beach town of Falmouth seemed like a lovely place to visit. But those who lived there year-round knew its other, darker side… Local businessman and infamous bully Melvin Reine had started setting the homes of his so-called enemies on fire. Few of his victims—or even the police—ever dared to implicate him. Because those who did would pay the price…

Mysterious events kept creeping up in Falmouth. The disappearance of Melvin’s wife, a dead man found in a cranberry bog, a teenager slated to testify against Melvin who boarded a ferry, never to be seen again—was Melvin somehow responsible? Only one police officer, John Busby, had the guts to press him for answers. One day he found himself on the wrong end of a sawed-off shotgun…but managed to survive the attack. This is the shocking true story about what can happen to an all-American town WHEN EVIL RULES.

    A great read....

    Having lived near this madman for more than 15+ years, I know the terror this man brought up on the town of Falmouth. I personally know many of the people that are discussed in here as well - particularly Verna Collins, whose son was allegedly murdered by Melvin and who only wanted justice for that murder - and Officer Bohnenberger, who wanted Melvin brought to justice from his side of the law. I remember when I first moved to Falmouth, and being told to not even look at Melvin Reine if he showed up somewhere. Don't look at him, don't talk to him, don't even acknowledge the air that he breathed. Bottom line: it's only fitting karma that he's rotting in Taunton with mental illness, for all of the fear and heartache he brought upon this beautiful seaside town. Although the book goes back and forth a bit and covers other Cape Cod homicides, it's a wonderful read into the dark depths of a madman's soul and his hold on this quaint Cape Cod town.
