Displaced from their home during remodelling and repair, Alex Peres and her love Cindy are starting to get on each others nerves. At least, Alex is certain, pets Wells and Fargo still love them, and clients are still calling for help with their various bits of local trouble.
Trouble gets personal, however, when Cindy's rising feeling that she's attracted a stalker is followed by mysterious notes and noises in the night, unsettling Alex so much she even gets her gun out of the safe. Strangers asking her friend Cassie for help with undisclosed cargo, in the dead of night, doesn't help settle anyone's nerves.
Normally sleepy Provincetown is fraught with perils for Alex and family and it's not even tourist season yet.
If you haven't walked Commercial Street with Alex Peres, it's time to find out why these cosy mysteries are awards short-list favourites. This sixth instalment in Jessica Thomas' Provincetown-based series features her signature wry wit and quirky characters.
