This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

I checked this book out of the library & couldn't finish it before it was due back; unfortunately, there are no renewals on it. I was about half way through and did not want to put it down! It does a great job of giving details of the Reine family, all the mysterious deaths, mysterious fires, & commingled relationships they were a part of. It is a very easy read. I wouldn't pass it up!
