Ruth’s grief from the loss of her
husband begins to heal and she forms a new love with Monk, but will the
evil she uncovered rise from under Finny’s oppressive fog?

For Ruth Budge, the worm business is thriving until a disembodied toe
turns up on the golf course and members of a strange cult begin to
infiltrate the quiet seaside town of Finny, California. Life is already
crazy for forty-seven-year-old Ruth, juggling the needs of her worm
farm, her new spouse and a platoon of crippled seabirds bequeathed to
her by her dead husband. Then there’s the insanity swirling around the
first ever Finny’ Fog Festival and the discovery of a bizarre diary from
one of the town’s seediest ancestors. Things go from misty to murderous
as a man plummets to his death from an exploding hot air balloon. Is
the craziness a byproduct of the festival, or a decades old curse
unearthed in an antique diary? Ruth had better find out fast, or her
worms won’t be the only things six feet under.
