On a shimmering, Massachusetts morning, Martha Brailsford stepped aboard the "Counterpoint" and went for the final sail of her existence. She had no manner of figuring out that the boat's proprietor, Tom Maimoni, had a gloomy part, that he'd lured different ladies onto his boat. What occurred that morning of July 12, 1998? Was Martha's loss of life an accident? Or, was once she murdered? Would there be adequate facts for a jury to convict Maimoni? during this nonfiction debut, secret novelist Margaret Press takes us into the guts of Salem, introducing a solid of real-life characters—the different ladies who encountered Maimoni, the group of devoted investigators, the "lobsterman," and the modern day witch of Salem. because the lives of those townspeople intertwine, readers are drawn in to an fascinating maze of shock and contradiciton, the place all of the paths lead again to that fateful July morning aboard the "Counterpoint."
