Publisher's Summary

His romantic weekend in ruins, shy 20-something artist Perry Foster learns that things can always get worse when he returns home from San Francisco to find a dead body in his bathtub. A dead body in a very ugly sportscoat - and matching socks. The dead man is a stranger to Perry, but that's not much of a comfort; how did a strange dead man get in a locked flat at the isolated Alton Estate in the wilds of the 'Northeast Kingdom' of Vermont? Perry turns to help from 'tall, dark and hostile' former navy SEAL Nick Reno - but is Reno all that he seems?

Gothic caper/cosy

The story is reminisant of good old fashioned cosies, Lots of scooby doo running around with hidden passages, strange characters and missing gems. Personally I still like them and so enjoyed this.

Characters are pretty standard Lanyon fare - big tough guy and slighter, weaker (in this instance asthmatic) guy who is the brains of the outfit. Not the most believable pairing, but I liked the grudging romance that develops between them, the pacing of it was nice.

The narration is good but I found the character voices distracting. Max Miller creates very different voices for each character and while credit is due his ability there, but for me they didn't sound right, Nick sounds bored and Perry very young; nationality probably has an impact there too - I'm british so less familiar with american accents.

Thank god you can speed up playback

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He's soooooooo slow. Completely unbearable to listen to. I had to speed it up, which I've never done before. Just a dreadful performance.
