The police conclude it was accidental, but Victoria's suspicions are aroused when she learns that Jube was evaluating the land's suitability for a casino proposed by the local Wampanoag tribal councils -- a hotly disputed proposition for the island. As a motorcycle rally adds fuel to the issue of gambling and tribal politics, the mystery deepens on a personal level for Victoria when a friend dies in a fire set to Burkhardt's home. When a computer turns up missing, and intimate, scandalous details of both victims' private lives are exposed, Victoria pieces together a motive -- and confronts a killer quite determined to see her dead.
