(7. Band Deborah Knott)
Violent storms often hit Colleton County, North Carolina, but when a local attorney's promiscuous wife is killed, the murder blows the lids off more homes than last year's hurricane.
As the victim's numerous lovers - including a handsome cousin of Judge Deborah Knott - scurry for cover stories, the judge begins her own investigation.
What she finds is a tangled web of extramarital affairs and secrets linking half the county ... while a massive hurricane rages up the Carolina coast, and a very real human killer prepares to strike again.
