Attorney Sarah Lansing has been charged with drug possession, a charge which is brought about after her defense of a woman who has been raped and then murdered by five Seattle cops who are determined to find the evidence which Sarah supposedly has, but has not turned over to the DA for fear it will get "lost" and the cops will go free. While no charges have been brought against these five cops, Sarah has lost her job and basically hides out at home. While awaiting her trial, Sarah decides to write a book about the five cops and the events leading up to her arrest. Sarah receives an invitation to A writer's colony on a tiny island several miles from Seattle where she spent her childhood summers with her family and where she again meets her first love, Luke Ford. Five other writers join Sarah on the island. Each has a secret they don't want to particularly share, including the owner of the colony. When a disaster strikes by way of an earthquake, two men show up on the island, all the truths come out and so does a killer, and now the body count begins to rise. This novel was truly enthralling up to the very end and I was truly surprised at its conclusion. You will enjoy this novel.
