Baker & Taylor
As a series of mysterious drowning deaths terrorizes a small summer resort community on Long Island's Shinnecock Bay, local college professor Deacon Kane, recovering from the accidental drowning death of his only son with the help of too much alcohol and a messy love affair with a married woman, finds himself the prime suspect in the crimes. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave
The cold of winter has come to the far reaches of Long Island, New York. The summer people are gone. So is the sunshine. And in the dark, a man carries a body to the water's edge. It's not his first--and he's not done yet…

The police are talking about suicides. But a handful of people suspect something darker is going on. One is a college teacher drowning himself in booze and dangerous sex. One is a former high school football star who wants a second chance. And between them is a mysterious private investigator who believes that a beautiful, amoral young woman is connected to the killings.

Soon, things will spin out of control. Clues will point in all the wrong directions. Then, it will be up to a few lost souls--men and women who know all about monsters--to bring a killer into the light….
