"In Newbury, New England, Indian Massaquoit finds sea gulls eating the remains of a dead man. The captain of the nearby ship Good Hope owned by local resident Catherine Williams, who is also Massaquoit's employer, identifies the corpse as a sailor. The townsfolk wonder if Billy Lockhart drowned from too much to drink or did one of those traveling Quakers kill him? Attending the Puritan religious services are two Quaker siblings, Roger and Jane Whitcomb as guests of Catherine. During the service, Roger takes exception to a comment by Minister Davis. Soon, a glove his shoved down the visitor's throat leaving him choking to death. Massaquoit saves Roger's life. However, not long afterward, someone succeeds in killing Roger. Though she rejected his beliefs, Catherine takes it personally that someone murdered her guest. She begins her own inquiries."

This was an interesting read, filled with tidbits of the era and appears to be pretty much historically correct ---the mystery of who killed the dead persons was put together well. The customs of the first colonial days was interesting besides how the people spoke so funny, good read!
