Terrance Silverman saw lots of strange things during his years sleeping in public parks and cemeteries, but nothing stranger than a dog dragging a detached human arm down the railroad tracks. The full moon glinted in the dog's eyes as it stopped to growl at him. It was then Terrance realized the dog was actually a coyote. The coyote dropped the arm, let out three quick yips, and proceeded to drag the arm by the shirtsleeve. The arm was heavy and the coyote looked at Terrance once more, snipped twice, and ran off into the woods leaving his prize behind. Terrance skirted around the arm, trying as hard as he could to avert his eyes. The watch on the wrist glared at him like a solitary eye filled with accusation. He hurried down the railroad tracks, wondering if he had drank too much. Then he saw the rest of the body parts.A murder staged as a railroad accident soon leads Acting Sheriff Robert Schwimer to the cold-case shotgun death of a sociopath teenager. Before long he is investigating a series of murders, kidnappings, a serial arsonist, and he's exhuming the grave of a long dead rape suspect. Between the current sheriff's corruption scandal, the State Coroner fighting with the County Medical Examiner for control of the autopsy, plus too many suspects, Bob is racing across the Massachusetts South Shore to neutralize the killers before they neutralize him.
