This is the second book in the K.D. Mason’s Jack Beale Mystery series. It follows after the events in Harbor Ice, the first book in the series.

It was just o.k. for a mystery. I wasn't crazy about the book not being written in the first person by the main character, who by the way the book is named after. I haven't read the first book so maybe there is some background information that I needed for this book but I doubt it. It was slow moving. Too much sailing information that had nothing to do with the plot. Way too many loose ends by the end of the book. Was good for reading on the boat but otherwise I'd pass.
Dreadful. Two cliches and a typo on the first page. Cardboard characters. Wooden dialogue. And lousy gender politics. This is the second book in the series, and the second in which Jack has to "rescue" his "girlfriend," Max from a bad romance. Bo-ring!
