Eastport, the little harbor village at the inner crook of Cape Cod's elbow, had not had a murder in more than half-century. Now Mac Curtis, CEO of Curtis Investments,is dead -- lying at the edge of Teal Pond, his gut neatly sliced with his own ultra-sharp double-edged blade -- a treasured memento from his combat days in Vietnam.

Andrew Doane, now Brother Bartholomew, a monk at Faith Abbey, is summoned from his monastic tasks to help his childhood friend Chief Dan Burke of the local police force solve the crime. David Manuel leads this unlikely pair towards an explosive climax.
