Sally Brainerd escaped from an asylum just in time to wonder if she was the one that killed her father. FBI Special Agent James Quinlan was sure that if Sally didn't kill her father, she would know who did, so he tracked her down. Both ended up in a little town , The Cove, thats claim to fame was the 'World's Greatest Ice Cream' shop and the nicest picture postcard type town you have ever seen. After meeting and talking to Sally, James wasn't at all convinced she could kill her own father and in the process the sleepy little town of The Cove has 2 murders of their own.
The basic story of James, FBI man, finding then changing his mind about Sally, insane murder suspect, was a great classic romance story. The other plot, the Cove, its beauty, its murders, its missing persons, was a strange twist to a typical story. I felt it could have been two different books.
