Read from September 19 to 21, 2010 — I own a copy

Great description of place - could hear the surf & easily imagine the rock-strewn coast. Central characters well done, three-dimensional, dynamic, easily related to. Another well-drawn story overall. Enjoyed my second reading as much as the first. The jacket blurb didn't help me remember the story, so took it with me on a trip. Remembered the criminal but not the reason, so kept my interest - appreciated the excellent descriptions of location & characters. Crime seemed to be solved by an "Aha!" moment induced by illness. But James writes so well that a second reading was not a waste.
