When the body of the glamorous film star Margot Browne washes ashore, Max's former colleague, Patrice Logan, requests his help. It's a perfect closed-circle murder: Margot must have been killed by one of the actors, stylists, scriptwriters, or second-tier royalty aboard the yacht. Patrice suspects the yacht's owner, a playboy film director she's been keeping tabs on for smuggling, but Max isn't so sure. During his investigation, Max uncovers secrets about the star's life that make him wonder if Margot was killed to help keep her lurid past in the past. As Max continues his investigation, though, he uncovers a host of motives, and it seems that Margot wasn't the only person onboard with a secret to keep.

If you like the series this one is not as good as previous stories although the conclusion is enjoyable. Somehow this one doesn't have the gusto & magnetism of the others. Too cumbersome with nothing much to raise the suspense.
I am sorry to be so harsh but this is not up to the standard of the 5 preceding books
The end was most interesting but the lead to it was slow & laborious.
Lovely voice, for me just right for Max & the other voices are fine. Just makes you forget it's all one person reading.
The promise of the next book given at the end of this one hopefully indicates a return the previous form
