As the park ranger of Slaters Lighthouse near Shuckers Point, New Jersey, she lives in the keepers cottage. After she and her husband, a well-know research scientist argue, he disappears. When a fishing boat twenty miles offshore hauls up her husbands body Trooper Bryce Johnson arrests Evie. Trooper Johnson loved Evie since second grade. He wanted to marry her in high school, but after he caught her phoning in a bogus bomb scare, he changed his mind and broke her heart. Only two months before her husbands disappearance, he found her aiming a gun at her husband and so Bryce believes the worst. Though she insists she is innocent, Bryce knows she has everything to gain from her husbands death--and Bryce must not allow his heart to influence the investigation. He finds he still has feelings for Evie--and thats not good. When someone fires several shots at Evie, he does not let her forget that she remains the main suspect in her husbands murder, but he cannot stop worrying about her safety. Is she in grave danger? Or does she have an accomplice? Or could it be that the most beautiful woman in Shuckers Point has stolen his heart once more? After the park boat disappears, the teenager who helps Evie at the lighthouse is brutally attacked, and the cottage is ransacked for a set of keys Bryce feels bound to protect Evie. When her daughter starts talking about a Shark Man who threatened to kill her father, Evie fears her daughter is making up a wild story, but Bryce takes the daughters tales into consideration. Can he find out who the Shark Man is before it is too late? And will Evie take a chance and trust the man who spurned her so long ago?
