Product Description: Jenn McKinlay, the author of On Borrowed Time, returns to coastal Connecticut, where librarian Lindsey Norris must solve a shooting and a missing person's case involving two reclusive brothers.
One of the most adventurous aspects of Briar Creek Public Library director Lindsey Norris's job involves a boat ride out to Star Island to deliver books to elderly hermits Stewart and Peter Rosen. The trip is even more exciting because the captain of the boat is Lindsey's ex-boyfriend Sully. When Stewart fails to meet their boat, Lindsey and Sully venture onto the brothers' property to investigate, risking their lives--as the brothers fiercely guard their privacy with deadly booby traps.
Once safely inside the brothers' cluttered Victorian, they discover Peter--in his wheelchair with a bullet hole in his chest. Stewart is nowhere to be found. Have they stumbled upon a tragic scene of fratricide, or has Stewart fled to escape whomever shot his brother? To discover what really went down on the isolated island, Lindsey will need to untangle a family history of secrets and lies, and determine if this brother's keeper needs to be rescued or arrested for murder. (Includes a Bonus Short Story: "An Unlikely Meeting".)
