Set on Martha’s Vineyard, the book follows the main character through this series as he involves himself in local murders. Given its copyright of 1992, you might join me in some well-deserved eye-rolling as women bare their midriffs and men are, well, manly throughout. But it’s a swift enough read with enough adventure to keep the pages turning (though not too quickly, mind you). There are other murder mystery writers out there who give me more for my time, but I will pick this author up again…at a yard or used book sale.
