A suspenseful, superbly atmospheric mystery that explodes the shadowy side of a sunlit vacation paradise...
It was a dark moment on Nantucket in more ways than one. an eclipse of the sun turned the daytime into chillingly unnatural night, and when the light returned. the most beautiful woman on the island lay dead in a pool of blood. Down-home Yankee sleuth Homer Kelly has to prove the innocence of a sexually betrayed girl with every reason to kill, and he has to discover who among the rick and righteous Nantucket upper crust descended to the depths of murder. With striking line drawings by the author to heighten the sense of very special place. Dark Nantucket Noon is a gem that will keep lights burning until dawn.
I picked this book up at The Book Rack in Kingsport, TN. There were 2 others there by her and since I had never read anything by her before I decided to just pick up the one. I'm really wishing I had bought them now.
She is also an wonderful artist and this mystery is just littered with lovely drawings by her. The story looks really good too. I'm excited to read it, but probably won't get to it until after the first of the year. I'll be going back to The Book Rack and hopefully the other two will still be there!
Have any of you read anything by her before? What were your thoughts?
