From the Publisher:
The residents of West Weesit had good reason to start calling Crooked Cliff "Suicide Cliff." Four women's bodies had been found at its foot, Kay Truman's only last month. Her father, Dave Truman, had already been depressed after his wife left him and his business failed. So when the folks at the tea party across the bay saw him come out of his home with a gun and point it at himself, they naturally assumed that the gunshot did him in.
