SECRETS! It's summertime in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and everything is beautiful. The town, the weather, the ocean, the people. For four months this seaside community becomes a playground for vacationers seeking to soak up all the fun the town has to offer. But this summer will be different, when devastating secrets threaten to destroy a family and nearly everyone they will come to know.
SCANDAL! A fugitive murderer, a wayward socialite, a deceptive med student, and a destructive sociopath all set the stage for a combustive summer. One filled with sex, lies, secrets, betrayals, vendettas, and a revenge that will scandalize this town beyond anyone's imagination.
MURDER! From Miami Beach to Rehoboth Beach and from Cinco de Mayo to Labor Day, a trail of blood and destruction will snake its way through the lives of a select group of individuals who will become forever connected by the depth of hatred and the stain of murder.
