'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
Danger stalks Meredith, a handsome reporter exhuming secrets at a seaside resort where the shadow of an unsolved murder threatens not only his life but, worse, his heart.
Reporting for a major gay men's magazine, Meredith arrived in Pelican Cove in search of one story but quickly got tangled in another---the unsolved murder of gay rights activist Mason Smith. Mason was handsome to the point of painful, a champion of equal rights, and the resort town's darkest footnote. The case was never solved, but a new lead draws Meredith into a deeper mystery involving a secret beach whose members are all marked by the same cryptic tattoo, a ghostly encounter, and threats that could cost Meredith his mind, his life, or worse, his heart, as he uncovers the truth of Mason's murder.
