Summary

Amateur sleuth Mordecai Tremaine is back in another classic mystery from the author of Murder for Christmas.

Mordecai Tremaine's hobby of choice - crime detection - has left him in need of a holiday. A break away from that gruesome business of murder will be just the ticket, and the picturesque island of Moulin d'Or seems to be just the destination.

Amid the sunshine and the sea air, Mordecai falls in with a band of fellow holidaymakers and tries to forget that such a thing as foul play exists. He should have been wiser, of course, because before too long villainy rears its head and a dead body is discovered.

With a killer stalking the sand dunes, it falls to Mordecai to piece together the truth about just who has smuggled murder on to the island idyll....

Passes the time

Not as intriguing as the ones before it but still enjoyable to listen to. Well recorded and performed.

Keeps you guessing

the plot is a good one, several people to suspect and not one of those where the murder is not one of the main characters and hence no way of guessing
