I've read other Dalgleish mysteries, and I think this one is the best of all. I loved the setting (a secluded island with a lot of class), I loved the many characters, and I loved the mystery.

Suspenseful murder mystery ... a bit reminiscent of Agatha Christie in that all the suspects are isolated on an island together.

My boss's wife gave this one to me. She enjoys murder mysteries like this one, but I do not. I read it anyway because she asked me to. I wish the author did more to develop the main characters, but it was still a decent read.
