Read in July, 2012

A small coastal village in Oregon is the setting for this story. The descriptions of the ocean and rugged coastline are one of the attractive features of an otherwise not very mysterious mystery. A gifted, but emotionally unstable artist, falls down a stairway, and her death is considered an accident. But her mother and her daughter are convinced that her most recent husband, the business manager of the gallery showing her artwork, murdered her. It’s convenient that a former New York City police officer has decided to settle in the village, recover from gun shot wounds that ended his career, and pursue his dream of making fine woodwork. He finds himself pursuing the truth behind the accident and also facing the truth in his past that led to a teenager’s death. The story is predictable, but well written and enjoyable to read on a hot summer afternoon.
