Main Character: Recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler and his friends, world-class codependent Barbara and computer genius Jimmy
Recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler and his friends, computer genius Jimmy and world-class codependent Barbara, take shares in a clean and sober group house in a Long Island resort community known locally as Deadhampton. Things turn lethal when the tide washes in the body of their beautiful housemate Clea, an investigative journalist whose passions included environmental issues and more than her share of boyfriends. Soon Bruce is up to his neck in sleuthing. His housemates and the crowd staying with a clean and sober playboy in a big house on the dunes claim recovery from drug, love, and sex addictions, compulsive overeating, bulimia, and anorexia. But somebody’s not abstaining from murder. As the summer heats up, secrets and lies start buzzing around this dream vacation like flies at a picnic on the beach.
