I was hooked from the very first page and simply couldn't put it down. In Kit McCormick, Max Gordon has created an instantly likeable character who, unlike so many heroines of this genre, is funny without being stupid (ahem, Stephanie Plum), smart but not overly perfect (lookin' at you, Kay Scarpetta), and hell- she lives on an island. How cool is that? The writing is crisp and clean while the plot zips along to a satisfying finish that keeps you guessing until the end. A perfect beach-day read. I'm waiting impatiently for the next in the series!
