This is the first in a series of mysteries featuring filmmaker Ellie Foreman. It's a good read with a rather complex plot that, however, can become confusing if one isn't paying strict attention.
Ellie is a likable protagonist with an interesting circle of friends and family: Ellie, the divorced mother of a twelve-year-old daughter, has a fiscally irresponsible ex-husband, an unusually but charmingly devoted gardener, a cigar-smoking character of a father, and, as we see blooming in this first book in the series, a love interest in the person of fifty-something David Linden.
I'll be interested to read future books in the series to see how Ellie develops, and how her safe career as a documentarian involves her in new difficulties.
i was very surprised that this was a first book..
it was really good (a bit very scary in parts)
but i wish that there was not a swastica on the cover)
it kept me from reading it for a long time.
