I enjoyed this novel a great deal. For me it read as much as a memoir as a story. Rosaline Riley has obviously done her research; the sense of place and era rang so true. Written in the first person point of view from the protagonist, Ellen, we are t ...more

I wish I’d realised that Death in a Dacron Sail is the second book in the Rhe Brewster Mystery Series; I think I would have enjoyed getting to know the characters and their history by reading the first book, rather than picking up hints of past actio ...more
