Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree is deep in her latest home improvement project--repainting the porch of her lovingly restored house in Eastport, Maine--when she notices the man repeatedly biking past her house. His face is unsettlingly familiar, but his chilling message seems inexplicable: Blood shows up again. Murder will out. Then there's the anonymous email warning her to beware the Fourth of July--just two days away. Jake remembers some shady characters from her days as a hotshot financial manager, but she's baffled as to the identity of her nemesis--until she receives a photo of a murdered man. From home invasion to kidnapping, this twisted killer is slowly but surely plotting a knockdown, not just for Jake but for the entire town of Eastport.

Good, read a long time ago.

Great series - but I agree with the previous two reviewers.

I'll agree with bookfanatic1979. Somebody from her old, bad life comes after Jake, and she has to survive somehow. It's not as satisfying as earlier books in the series.

The last couple of entries in this series seem to have focused more on Jake and her trouble than an outside murder to investigate—something I miss from the earlier books in the series. I’m almost to the point where I question whether I want to continue with these books.
