And when Casey discovers the dead body of one of the tech gurus on the rocky shore of the Pacific, she begins to suspect that what looks like an accident is actually a calculated murder. With so many suspects to choose from and mysterious connections emerging between members of the groups, Casey will have to knit together a colorful array of clues as she wrangles with Vista Del Mar's prickly manager and the curmudgeonly local police lieutenant. And as she closes in on the likely culprit, she'll have to tie up the loose ends of her investigation before the killer can stitch her full of holes . . .
