When a catastrophic hurricane devastates Stone Cove Island, a quaint New England resort community, everyone pulls together to rebuild. Seventeen-year-old Eliza Elliot volunteers to clean out the island's iconic lighthouse and stumbles upon a secret in the wreckage: a handwritten letter. On first glance, it hardly makes sense. But the longer Eliza studies it, the more convinced she becomes that it's an anonymous confession to a thirty-year-old crime: the unsolved murder of a local teen named Bess Linsky. Soon Eliza finds herself in the throes of an investigation she never wanted or asked for. As Stone Cove Island fights to recover from disaster, Eliza plunges the locals back into a nightmare they believed was long buried. Everybody is a suspect. Everywhere she turns, there might be an enemy. And everything she ever believed about her hometown is false.

"The youthful voice of Jorjeana Marie is perfect for this easy-paced debut mystery set in a storm-ravaged New England resort community. In the aftermath of a catastrophic hurricane, high school senior Eliza Elliott volunteers to help with cleanup and finds a tattered handwritten confession in the storm's debris. Marie's skillful rendering of youthful characters Eliza, Ben, and Joe and their search for answers is age appropriate and authentic. A more mature tone characterizes Eliza's parents and the secretive townspeople who are determined to stop Eliza's investigation into the decades-old crime. Marie assumes an edgy quality that adds to the suspense as long buried secrets emerge in a mystery that will appeal to both young adult and older listeners. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
