Another page-turning installment in Nancy Atherton’s beloved cozy mystery series featuring Aunt Dimity, phantom detective
Lori Shepherd is no stranger to trouble and intrigue. But when Bill, her high- profile attorney husband, receives a number of chilling death threats aimed at his family, danger hits close to home. With Scotland Yard on the case, Bill decides to send Lori and their five- year-old twins to the safety of a remote island off the coast of Scotland. There, another mystery begins to unfold- Lori suspects that the locals on the island are making a fortune running an illegal smuggling operation. What else could explain their luxurious lifestyles? But after finding a human skull washed up on the beach, Lori fears something even more sinister is going on. With Aunt Dimity’s help, Lori begins to piece together the clues, unaware of the growing danger on the island. Will the murderous threats against her family finally catch up with her?
I don’t think I was really in the mood as I read this book because my mind kept wandering and I had to re-read passages over again to refresh my memory as to what I had read. I still love the series because its not it’s fault that I was having a bad day.
Series: Jack McEvoy #1
Publication Date:April 29, 2003
Denver crime-beat reporter Jack McEvoy specializes in violent death. So when his homicide detective brother kills himself, McEvoy copes in the only way he knows how–he decides to write the story. But his research leads him to suspect a serial killer is at work–a devious murderer who’s killing cops and leaving a trail of poetic clues. It’s the news story of a lifetime, if he can get the story without losing his life.
I’ve wanted to read/listen to this book for a long time but for some reason I always ended up reading/listening to something else. Finally, one day I found the audio version on sale so I grabbed it up and slipped it in the car cd player on the way home and almost didn’t want to get out of the car when I got home. It’s a great story about murders, a manhunt, the intertwining of characters and twists and turns you won’t believe. I loved it!!!!!!
