Baker & Taylor
When her vacation on Block Island is interrupted by her discovery of the body of a murder victim, FBI agent Poppy Rice investigates, which leads her to discover another body and strange clues that link the two deaths.

McMillan Palgrave
In Poppy Rice's second venture, the smart, outspoken FBI agent's vacation is rudely interrupted by a sinister murder
FBI agent Poppy Rice is, rather unwillingly, taking time off to recuperate from injuries sustained on the job. A few days into her ill-conceived vacation on Block Island with Joe, her sometime-lover and soul mate, she happens upon a corpse dumped in the middle of the road.
The body of the victim, a young girl from a summer camp for overweight teenagers, is painfully contorted, her face frozen in a death scream. There are no visible wounds and the cause of death is a mystery. Although Poppy is no stranger to gruesome scenes, she is so disturbed by the murder that she can't help but defy her orders to rest. Then, just as she begins poking around, another body is found in the same condition as the first; this time, the pathologist reveals another similarity-the eardrums of both girls were ruptured.
Now Poppy must get to the killer before the killer gets to any more girls. With no clue as to the murderer's method or motive, she's going to need all the help she can get. But in the close-knit, tight-lipped Block Island community, secrets are kept-even deadly ones.

Blackwell North Amer
FBI agent Poppy Rice usually agrees with her director, but when he insists she take a leave of absence to recuperate from recent injuries sustained on the job, she's less than thrilled. Reluctantly, she accepts an invitation from her friend Joe Barnow to spend a little time at his cottage on Block Island.
A few days into her obligatory vacation, while biking the island's deserted lanes, surrounded by sea and bayberry, she comes upon a corpse dumped in the middle of the road. The body of the victim, a young girl from a summer camp for overweight teenagers, is painfully contorted, her face frozen in a death scream. There are no visible wounds, and the cause of death is a mystery.
Although Poppy is no stranger to gruesome scenes, she is so disturbed by the murder that she can't help but defy the orders to idle her engines. No sooner has she begun poking around than another body is found in the same condition as the first; this time, the pathologist reveals another grisly similarity - the eardrums of both girls were ruptured.
