A very good read. Set on the author's trademark style of a remote island, accessible only by boat or helicopter. A famous writer is found hanging from the lighthouse, and Dalgleish, Kate Mishkin and her new partner fly in to solve the mystery. Again, there are numerous characters with suspicious things in their past, and the added feature of celebrity in that the island is a getaway for those rich and famous or important who have stressful lives. The island's cliff sides are high and the ocean pounds into them relentlessly. Many little cottages are spread over the land, and gourmet food and wine is available, either in your home or at the central dining hall. What a comfortable way to solve a crime! One of her best.
