There's definitely something in the water at the Maine resort where Peter Shandy is staying on a quest to find some rare lupines. When he witnesses a sudden and suspicious death over dinner, and then stumbles on some extraordinary paintings, that 'something' could be good or bad....
There is no shortage of people with a motive for killing Jasper Flodge, who seems to have been the most hated man in Maine - but no one is admitting to being the creator of the mysteriously unsigned paintings.
I'm a huge fan of Charlotte MacLeod, and am enjoying working my way through them once again.
This story has Peter Shandy off on his own most of the time - his wife Helen makes an appearance, but is not central to the story.
John McLain does a fair job of the narration, but his habit of mispronouncing words or names occasionally grates.
