The second Jane Bunker novel from Linda Greenlaw exposes her problems as a writer. She does not or cares not to do dialogue. Most of the book is the internal thoughts of the main character Jane Bunker, who resides in Maine and is friends with the local diner girl. In this novel, a fisherman disappears and Bunker finds a dead guy in the water, but not the right dead guy so she has to investigate the death of one person and the disappearance of Parker Alley who seems to have a lot more money than normally is earned by a lobsterman. Greenlaw's description of the sea and ships and mariners is right on, but the detective part of the book is neatly solved in one fell swoop. Some of the characters in Maine look like keepers but Greenlaw needs to get a better handle on the detective investigating and learn to write dialogue.
