Coffin came back to his hometown of Provincetown, Massachusetts, hoping to put his days of grisly big-city crime-fighting behind. But so far, the quirky beach town has been none too peaceful. Case in point: Beautiful local Kenji Sole--heir to a tremendous fortune--has been found stabbed to death on the floor of her bedroom. In a negligee. And everybody in town has an opinion about who did it...Someone very close to the victim is probably responsible. But this was a woman with an active love life. "Very" active. Since she never cared much about her lovers' marital status, Frank and his partner Officer Lola Winters have their work cut out for them interviewing all of her lovers--not to mention their jealous wives--to find out who killed the much-sought-after Ms. Sole.
