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
- Chris Geschwantner
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.
