North Kingstown : BBC Audiobooks America, 2009.
Back in the day, Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree turned profits managing the fortunes of Manhattan's most fortunate. Then she fled the rat race for a stately old fixer-upper in easygoing Eastport, Maine. But now a rat from an even darker corner of Jake's past has turned up ... a killer with a blueprint for demolishing her new life. As a home repair enthusiast, Jake knows that nothing lasts forever -- not windows or doors, not plaster or plumbing. And not good fortune. After more than three decades eluding justice, the man who murdered her mother is finally about to stand trial -- until he vanishes into thin air. Jake has a terrible foreboding of where Ozzie Campbell will turn up next. And while the local police chief is sure she's overreacting, the truth is far worse than even Jake's worst fears.
