Book Review: A Beautiful Place to Die by Philip R. Craig (1989)
Synopsis: Retired Boston police officer Jefferson Jackson should be enjoying retirement in Martha's Vineyard, focusing on fishing and his new girlfriend, Zee. However, when the fishing boat, the Nellie Grey, mysteriously explodes, killing one of the passengers and seriously injuring the son of one of his best friends, Jeff is asked to find out the cause. This requires him to investigate Martha's Vineyard's seedier side as he looks for a drug dealer that might have ordered a hit on a former customer.
