When a pre-tourist season visitor to Vineyard Haven survives a murder attempt by donning a bullet-proof vest, sometime private investigator J. W.

It's March on Martha's Vineyard. Too early for bluefish, but not too early for trouble. Former Olympic fencing champion turned millionaire real estate developer Donald Fox has targeted the island for his newest moneymaking scheme. With land values huge and many longtime residents in possession of fuzzy deeds of sometimes dubious legal value, Fox and his team plan to force people to sell cheap. Give up now or we'll fight you in court, is the threat. Even full-time fisherman and part-time investigator J.W. Jackson and wife, Zee, have been approached to sell their house to Fox. Big mistake.
Given the escalating tensions, J.W.'s not particularly surprised when Donald Fox's brother, Paul, is shot down on a Vineyard street. But was Donald really the intended victim? Both Foxes have many enemies. And could a man named John Reilley be one of them? For reasons unrelated to land disputes, J.W. finds himself probing this mysterious man's past. Bad things are happening, and John Reilley may be involved.
