The Cape Cod beach town of Falmouth seemed like a lovely place to visit. But those who lived there year-round knew its other, darker side... Local businessman and infamous bully Melvin Reine had started setting the homes of his so-called enemies on fire. Few of his victims-or even the police-ever dared to implicate him. Because those who did would pay the price...Mysterious events kept creeping up in Falmouth. The disappearance of Melvin's wife, a dead man found in a cranberry bog, a teenager slated to testify against Melvin who boarded a ferry, never to be seen again-was Melvin somehow responsible? Only one police officer, John Busby, had the guts to press him for answers. One day he found himself on the wrong end of a sawed-off shotgun...but managed to survive the attack. This is the shocking true story about what can happen to an all-American town WHEN EVIL RULES.
