Overview

Set in the fictional town of Paddy's Arm, Newfoundland, Alice Walsh's debut mystery novel is at once harrowing and homey, equal parts police procedural and diner gossip. When Claire and Bram's only child dies suddenly, it at first appears to be a case of crib death. But when the real cause of death indicates homicide and Claire is arrested as the number-one suspect, her friend, lawyer Lauren LaVallee, promises she'll do everything she can to prove Claire's innocence.

As Lauren combs Paddy's Arm for suspects, amid department politics and small-town talk, leads abound. Why are professors Frances and Annabelle being so secretive about their adopted daughter? What's behind a troubled student's sudden disappearance? And who is the mysterious platinum blonde observed at the scene of the crime? Meanwhile, Lauren's own secret—a case that almost cost her her career back in Montreal—and sudden the return of an ex-lover who wants back in her life, threaten to overwhelm the investigation altogether.
