When does the disappearance
of an old friend become an obsession? Can the murder of an innocent eccentric
lure you back to a previously abandoned life? For Sam Parker, the answer is:
When it becomes personal. In Deadhead, a former forensic microbiologist is
catapulted out of retirement when the otherwise quiet Northwestern coastal town
of Pacific Cove suddenly experiences a missing person and leads to theft,
deceit and gruesome death. Parker, his wife Morgan and friend Doc Biggs are
propelled into a labyrinth of misdirection and deceit in an attempt to uncover
the truth. For Sam it’s a summer of changed plans. For the residents of Pacific
Cove it’s a summer that they will never forget.
When the severed hands of young women begin appearing around
the normally sleepy tourist town of Pacific Cove, Sam Parker is called in by

mysterious packages are delivered and a friend is taken, the search for the
twisted killer intensifies.
Seeking to avoid his past, forensics expert Sam Parker can
no longer avoid involvement in the case.
