Dolly Beaugard was a pillar of the community and a tower of strength for her eccentric family. When her body washed ashore on the Maine coast, the police ruled it a homicide. Who would murder dear Dolly, and what connection is there, if any, between her murder and the deaths of two of the most disreputable members of the community whose bodies washed ashore at the same spot a few days before?
