Her biggest dream was to become a mail jumper, not the key witness to a crime…
All Bailey wants is to join the elite crew of mail jumpers, fleet-footed kids who must leap from boat to pier to deliver the mail around a Wisconsin lake. She’s never done anything so daring in her life, but the hazards of wind and wave would be worth it to work alongside Captain Tommy. If she’d ever had a grandfather—or a family at all—she would have wanted him to be like Tommy.
But all her charts to success may end up in the drink when she catches a veteran mail jumper red-handed with a key to the police station. Only the night before, someone broke in and attacked a dispatcher. Is it possible that Baron, the most popular boy in town… is the villain?
Meanwhile, Police Detective Monica Steele learns that the case carries ties to a murder thought solved long ago, a suspect who’s been behind bars almost twenty years, and a cop she always knew was crooked to the bone.
Can they dredge up the truth before Baron catches on? Or will Bailey’s dreams for a perfect summer be dashed against the shore?
