From back of book: The village of Eastpoint, a close-knit Long Island community, has never been tested with a serious crime. At least, not until syndicated romance columnist John Hunter is found dead in his home, and apparent suicide. Even then, the townspeople accept the auslander's demise in stride. But when Police Chief Hank Reed discovers a secret room filled with lewd paintings of Hunter and local married women, he wonders whether the collection was someone's sick imagination or part of a duplicitous life.
It isn't until the medical examiner's official report declares that Hunter was murdered, followed by a leak of Hunter's shocking exploits, that panic engulfs Eastpoint's residents.
