It's Christmas Eve on Nantucket, and prominent businessman Jackson Blum is about to live out his own version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. No visions, no ghosts --- just the past, represented by the exhumed skeleton of his old partner, Ted Coddington, with a bullet from Blum's Ruger pistol in its skull; the present, in the form of a horribly mistreated employee who reveals Blum as the Scrooge he is; and the future, invoked by a family crisis that threatens to ruin the rest of his life. Nantucket Police Chief Henry Kennis is investigating the so-cold Coddington case with Blum as the main suspect while he roots out a plot to rig the traditional $5,000 Red Tickets raffle and struggles to close down a local opioid dealer who's selling to high school kids.

During a long winter and short, chilly spring, a series of disturbing incidents rock the small resort island of Nantucket. A Land Bank executive dies in a suspicious hunting accident, a prominent local family's historic summer cottage burns down in an arson fire, and a teenage girl lies comatose from a drug overdose. When spring turns to summer and the tourists flood the island, the mysterious cycle of violence spins faster. A young Jamaican boy is found dead in the harbor, a sex-for-drugs pornography ring is exposed and a beloved local hero is murdered in cold blood. Could all of these events be part of the same sinister conspiracy?
