She came in the rain. Alone. On a bicycle. After more than a decade Iris Tilford is back in Broward's Rock - and her return has nasty and unexpected repercussions that are rocking Annie and Max Darling's sea island hometown. Years ago Iris disappeared after a fatal high school tragedy. Now that she's home again, Annie's extending the hand of friendship by inviting the sad, beautiful, and mysterious stranger to the Darlings' party at the pavilion. But Death, as it turns out, is an uninvited guest at their gala. Suddenly Max and Annie are in the middle of a devastating storm of rage, secrets, and murder that they don't understand. All they do know is that now someone is trying to kill them - and it's someone they call their friend.
