"She has a sailboat docked on San Juan Island, a maritime attorney for a lover, and a flourishing career as a private eye. Life is as good as it gets for Scotia Mackinnon. But there's that destiny thing. This time her name's Elyse Montenegro, a paranoid beauty claiming to be stalked. It would've been a case strictly for the cops if not for the sudden and mysterious death of Eyse's best friend. Or the search into Elyse's past--and her late husband's unsolved murder. Scotia's raising questions as dark and troubling as the clouds gathering over the mainland. A storm's brewing. Scotia's going to get caught in the deluge. And it might not be her destiny to make it out alive."
