Baker & Taylor Cass, a photographer who made a name for herself in the seventies, now finds herself adrift when someone sends her on a mercy gig where she stumbles across an old mystery that is still claiming victims.
Blackwell North Amer Cass Neary made her name in the '70s as a photographer embedded in the burgeoning punk movement in New York City. Her pictures of the musicians and the hangers-on, the infamous, the damned, and the dead, got her into art galleries and a book deal. Thirty years later she is adrift, on her way down, and almost out when an old acquaintance sends her on a mercy gig to interview a famously reclusive photographer who lives on an island in Maine. When she arrives Downeast, Cass stumbles across a decades-old mystery which is still claiming victims, and into one final shot at redemption.
