I love finding a good story and this definitely is one.
The star of the show is Julie who is an expert in body language. This makes for some interesting interviews of people involved with the victim. The victim is Marc, Julie’s best friend and it gradually becomes apparent that the motive centers around an island called Castle Cay which Marc inherited from his mother but which the family had not used for years. Top of the suspect list is Marc’s brother, Avram. He’s a nasty character who’s pushing for the sale of Castle Cay, but he doesn’t inherit the money from the sale, so why would he want Marc dead? Or was it Marc’s lover David, a quarrel maybe? Or could it have been suicide? Marc did have AIDS. So many questions, so few answers. Helping Julie to answer the questions is Joe, a private detective that she rents office space from. But is this more than just professional? To find out you’ll just have to read the book.
This story was obviously well thought out and for the most part well paced. I felt like the writing got better with each page and kept me intrigued and wanting to see how it would all turn out. After a slow start I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it for those who like mysteries. The body language analysis aspect adds a nice little twist. I look forward to reading the next one in this series.
