Summary

Summary

In the Category 3 winds of a late-season hurricane, Nantucket police detective Merry Folger and her team attempt a rescue off the secluded island of Tuckernuck—only to discover a deadly secret.

As a Category 3 hurricane bears down on Nantucket, Dionis Mather and her father have their work cut out for them. Their family business is to ferry goods and people back and forth from Tuckernuck, the private island off Nantucket’s western tip, a place so remote and exclusive that it is off the electric grid. As caretakers of the small plot of sand in the middle of the Atlantic, the Mathers are responsible for evacuating Tuckernuck’s residents, who range from a stubborn elderly native who refuses to leave her family home to the abandoned summer house pets of an absentee NFL quarterback. But as the storm surge rises and the surf warnings mount, Dionis has to make a choice: abandon whatever—or whoever—was left behind, or risk her own life by plunging back into the maelstrom. Even she has no idea what evil the hurricane is sheltering.


When the coast guard notifies the Nantucket police of a luxury yacht grounded in the shoals off Tuckernuck’s northern edge—with two shooting victims lying in the main cabin—detective Meredith Folger throws herself into an investigation before the hurricane sweeps all crime-scene evidence out to sea. Merry is supposed to be on leave this weekend, dancing at her own wedding, but the Cat 3 has thrown her blissful plans into chaos. As her battered house fills with stranded wedding guests and flood waters rise all over Nantucket Island, Merry has her own choice to make: How much should she risk in order to bring a criminal to justice?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you’ve never experienced a hurricane, this is the next best (or worst) thing to it, as the author describes in vivid detail the power and devastation it can cause…A fast-moving story involving greed, murder, and the will to survive.” Mystery Scene
“A story of murder and mayhem…what makes Death on Tuckernuck so riveting is Mathews’ description of the storm and turbulent sea.” Denver Post
“A mystery that’s so suspenseful it’s hard not to skip a chapter to see if certain deeply likable characters are still alive…The novel lives and breathes New England island life, with a plot brimming with the best kinds of rude surprises.” Washington Post
