Old money and perfect manners have buried secrets that threaten to tear the Carteret family apart. When Pony Carteret mysteriously drowns at the family summer home, leaving her baby deserted on the beach, the past pushes its way to the surface. Richard Poe tells the story from the perspective of each of the surviving siblings, William, Tinker, and Minerva. In a compelling voice, he uses well-modulated, enunciated tones that ratchet up the tension. Although mystery fans will find no surprises, the dynamics of a family dedicated to preserving its image at all costs will keep listeners engaged.
