by Lee HansonI decided to re-read this after finishing the first book in the series - Castle Cay. It is well worth the second read, and the passage of time meant that I did not remember all the details of the story. For me this was even better than Castle Cay, which I also enjoyed. The author skilfully set up several people as potential suspects without ever misdirecting the readers. On the few occasions when the book is written in the killer's voice, there is nothing which identifies him, but usually a little to make one wonder if it might be someone whom it ultimately turns out not to be. There are several people here, who having something of their own to hide, are somewhat economical with the truth, which for a time at least, points the finger of suspicion at them. As Julie unravels the case, the reader is right there alongside her and things begin to fall into place, although for Julie the moment of realisation may have come too late as she finds herself in a perilous situation.
I started this book late last night, and only put it down when I fell asleep, this morning it has been a great distraction as I wanted to follow it through to the end. I will now be hunting for the third book in the series but maybe I had better not download it until I have got a few things done.
