Baker & Taylor
Responding to a friend who claims that he has found evidence to prove that their small New Hampshire town had once been a Viking settlement, Lewis Cole discovers that Jon Ericson had been murdered just after leaving him a message and sets out to uncover the truth about a crime in which the victim's estranged brother has become the prime suspect.

McMillan Palgrave
Retired Department of Defense research analyst Lewis Cole loves his small New Hampshire town of Tyler Beach, and he shares this affection with his friend Jon Ericson, an eccentric retiree who’s convinced Vikings had once lived in their town, more than a thousand years ago. For years Ericson has searched for artifacts to prove Vikings had a settlement on the New Hampshire coastline, and when Lewis gets a phone message from Ericson that he’s finally found this evidence, Lewis races over to congratulate him. But when he reaches Ericson’s house, however, there is no celebration: there is only a crime scene. In the minutes after the excited phone call, someone has brutally murdered Lewis’ friend and stolen the artifacts. Who could have committed such a crime? Ericson’s estranged brother, a convict who deals in stolen antiques? A disgruntled town resident, jealous of Ericson’s quest? Or someone else who would easily kill to cover up such an archaeological discovery? These questions and others haunt Lewis, but Lewis is sure of one thing: he intends to avenge Ericson’s death, recover the missing Viking artifacts, and honor his friend’s memory, even if it means paying a stiff price -- exchanging his beachfront home for a prison cell.

Lewis Cole's friend Jon Ericson has spent years studying the history of their small New Hampshire town, convinced that it was once a Viking settlement. When Lewis gets a phone message from Jon saying that he's finally found the evidence to prove it, he hurries right over. When he reaches Jon's house, however, Lewis discovers a crime scene. In the brief time since Jon left that message, someone has murdered him. Lewis's suspicions immediately turn to Jon's estranged brother, an antiques dealer who sometimes sold Jon's finds and thought Jon should have spent his time looking for more profitable relics than the likes of Viking coins. As Lewis tries to learn the truth and recover the relic Jon claimed to have found, he confronts a strange collection of contacts Jon made over the course of his investigations. In the process, he must turn to an old friend of somewhat dubious profession for help and untangle a knotted web of frustrated dreams, ambition, jealousy, and anger.
