One of a series of Martha's Vineyard mysteries. This one is a bit diferent because it involves locals, during the "off season" when tourists are few and far between. Again, interesting characters, and smart plot - and a surprise victim and criminal! Fun read!
Animal rights activists are squaring off against the hunters; environmentalists are at odds with land developers and J.W. Jackson leads the hunt for a murderer.
Like any good cozy mystery, this novel has an engaging amateur detective and an attractive setting. Former Boston cop J.W. Jackson is trying to fit in on Cape Cod, but a local murder means someone wants his help to find the killer. The story is brisk and the characters are well fleshed out. Anyone with a fondness for culinary mysteries will like how the author weaves in descriptions of the main character's meals without stopping the plot completely for recipes. I really enjoyed the less than cliched outcome of the investigation made the novel more real.
