Irene Chavez, the lone female detective in a rural Washington State sherriffs department, is assigned to investigate the death of this privileged young psychiatrist.As Irene gets to know Annes family, their houseguests and neighbors - and Anne herself, as the dead woman emerges in the accounts of the peopl who knew her - she comes to believe that it was not the boom of a sailboat that whacked Anne on the back of the head, but someone close to her.Irenes own past loss and unrealized ambitions, along with her awareness of the distinctions of social strata, compromise her objectivity and professionalism as she attempts to maintain composure in the face of the opaque and entitled enclave of summer people.

Working with unusual autonom and urgency while her supervisor is on vacation, Irene resists the easy solution - and the familys wishes - to close the case as an accident and persists in a homicide investigation.Paralleling Irenes professional challenges, her fourteen-year-old-son is arrested, bringing home to Irene the perils of growing up in a small town or anywhere, and the inevitable parenting limitations of a working single mother. It is in the context of her sons arrest that Irene first become acquainted with the new Mason County prosecuting attorney, a potential ally or adversary, she isnt sure which.Carefully observed and psychologically authentic, this first Irene Chavez mystery blends rich character development and a strong sense of place with the intricate plotting of a traditional procedural.
