In this tightly crafted guessing game, Vivian Lawry and Lawrence Gulick have given veteran mystery readers a real challenge. I’ve often take pride in sorting out the “might have done its” from the “couldn’t have done its,” narrowing the former down to one or two. However, in this case, nearly every character, even the nice ones, had a believable motive and opportunity to murder the despicable victim. Combine this with lively writing and a cast of fully fleshed-out characters, add realistically drawn academic and nautical settings, and the result is a story that will grip you from the first page to the last. I couldn’t wait to dive into the second book in this series, “Tiger Heart.” Hopefully, there with be more to come.
