In Echo Bay, the past is on a collision course with the present. August 1940: In driving rain, in darkness, Lake Tahoe's fabled steamship, Constance, slips beneath the surface of Echo Bay. Present: Sean Rainey, ex-PR fixer, failed husband, once-hot Olympic ski prospect, is delivered an ultimatum. Sell the dream of raising Constance to the town he once fled, a suspect in this popular brother's drowning death--or lose his children. Because making no choice is his choice, Sean's return comes under an ever-darkening cloud of murder and deceit, hate and betrayal, big money and bad blood. To survive--and to claim his children--Sean must confront not only his own violent past, but an adversary hell-bent on destroying him and those he loves.
