This is the best mystery that I have read in quite a while. Barbara Holloway has become a favorite character now. She is competent and a downright real person, someone you would like to have for a friend. If you are looking for a great summer beach book, this is the one. You will not be able to put it down and when it is over you wish it had gone on longer.
Barbara Holloway has a reputation for taking on difficult cases and winning. But in every previous case, there's been some fragment on which to build and argument. This time, she may have taken on a case with no defense at all.
