Publisher's Summary

When the body of the glamorous film star Margot Browne washes ashore, Max's former colleague, Patrice Logan, requests his help. It's a perfect closed-circle murder: Margot must have been killed by one of the actors, stylists, scriptwriters, or second-tier royalty aboard the yacht. Patrice suspects the yacht's owner, a playboy film director she's been keeping tabs on for smuggling, but Max isn't so sure. During his investigation, Max uncovers secrets about the star's life that make him wonder if Margot was killed to help keep her lurid past in the past. As Max continues his investigation, though, he uncovers a host of motives, and it seems that Margot wasn't the only person onboard with a secret to keep.

Four Stars First 3/4 of book, 2 Stars for the End

Michael Page, the narrator, does a great job, He raises the quality of the book dramatically.. And the first 3/4 of the book was solid. The characters were for the most part well defined. Unfortunately, I found the ending very unsatisfactory. It felt as if the author suddenly had enough pages,needed to end the book and had no idea how to do that
.
I want a mystery to challenge my thought process and at the end I want to see the logic of how the author pulled all the strings together. Don't just throw the end together and toss in some last minute facts to justify the choice. That is an insult to the reader.

Rambling Mess

Any additional comments?

I am a big fan of this series and I was very much looking forward to the new installment. The last installment wasn't my favorite and the author seems to be moving away from the village and its people more and more. I recently listened to Wicked Autumn (book 1) again, so the contrast is striking. I can't even believe that this is the same author.

This book was a rambling mess devoid of all charm that existed in the previous books. None of the characters from the village make an appearance. We get to hear Awena speak only a couple of times for maybe a minute and it doesn't even resemble the character. Max Tudor spends most of the book in inner monologue mode. Going on and on about everything and all of it adds up to nothing. This might be the last Tudor book for me. I will wait and read reviews before I waste a credit.
