On a weekend vacation with her brother and niece, Beth Anderson is unnerved when a stroll on the beach reveals what appears to be a skull, and instantly recalls the retired couple who disappeared off the island's coast a few months earlier. As a stranger approaches, Beth panics and covers the evidence. But when she later returns to the beach, the skull is gone. With only her niece as a witness, there is no proof of foul play for Beth to bring to the authorities. To her brother, the missing skull is just a good story to tell at an island bonfire and campout that night. The tale is heard by an eager group of vacationers -- including charismatic Keith Henson, the stranger from the beach. Everyone dismisses the events as the product of an overactive imagination, but when Beth hears someone outside her tent, she instinctively knows her fears are justified

Very predictable. Just like a couple of her other books. I won't be reading any more of her books. The main female character, Beth, is a total grouch!! She's either demanding, curt, angry....WAY too negative for me. I finished the book just to learn what the end was, but I had guessed who-done-it long before the end.

Simply, a very bad book. Predictable and as usual for Graham, cookie-cutter writing. If you're into the whole "doomed romance" thriller where you know right from the beginning that the 300 pages in between are just filler until the main characters get together, then this book is for you
