I received a free download of "Murder At The Rocks" by Jill Paterson, through a smashwords coupon.I really enjoyed reading this book.I am an avid reader who enjoys reading mystery suspense thrillers.This book definately fits in this category.Detective Chief Inspector Fitzjohn has to solve the mystery of who murdered Laurence Harford. Harford was such a jerk, the question was really who wouldn't want to kill him? He had been cheating on his wife for years , he bullied his late brother Edward so much the man had a heart attack. he is trying to challenge Edward's will to rob Ed's son Dr. Nick Harford of the 51% share of stock in the jewelry/diamond company's stock left to him, he was having an affair with another man's wife, and so on. There is also the matter of him firing the wife-abusing shop manager and a mysterious man limping in the shadows who seems to put fear into Laurence.
More bodies show up along with more suspects and poor Fitzjohn has to battle to solve the crime while dealing with a meddling sister who comes to town fussing because he is alone after his wife died, a boss Grieg who does not like him, and multiple mysteries all relating to the one at hand. This book is one that will keep you up all night turning the pages and unable to find a good point to stop for the night.
If you enjoy reading a good mystery, this is the book for you.
