On the banks of the scenic Truxton River, nestled in rolling woodlands just minutes away from our nation's capital, lies Gryphon Gate. Drawn to its breathtaking view of the Chesapeake Bay, Henry Drysdale selected this water-front location to create a premier gated community where the affluent and privileged could live, work and play. However, tempers flare and tension grows when Vanessa, Henry's ex, decides to build a 300-unit condominium development on an adjoining tract of land. The Gryphon Gate town meeting disintegrates into a free-for-all as environmentalists, developers, residents and the media clash.
Then the violence turns ugly - a body is discovered lying face down in a sandtrap off the sixth hole. Called in to head the investigation, Police Captain Diane Robards is thwarted at every turn as she discovers that behind the elaborate landscaping and elegant doorways, in the privacy of bedrooms, yachts' cabins, clubrooms, and saunas, lie closely guarded secrets. With the body count rising, Diane races against the clock to sort her allies from her enemies as she attempts to strip away the veneer and peek beneath the facades to unmask a dangerous and ruthless killer.
