Over the next few days, the body count rises and Annie strongly suspects that all the victims were murdered most foully and that they are all connected in some unknown way. The trick now will be to prove it, with the able assistance of investigator-spouse Max, best friend and best customer Henny Brawley, local best-selling superstar Emma Lloyd, and even (surprise!) Annie's normally ditsy mother-in-law, Laurel.
But what the intrepid crime solvers do not realize is that the killer they seek is more ingeniously efficient than most, and the puzzle they wish to solve is, in reality, a time bomb packed with an explosive mix of arson, assault, kidnapping, robbery, and homicide, of course. One false step and Annie and her canny cohorts will be blown off Broward's Rock for good and they'll sink like stones into the cold, briny deep.

"This latest can only reinforce Hart's high standing among the cozy mystery cognoscenti." (Publishers Weekly)
the plot was well fleshed out with many parts that didn't seem important until last 30 minutes very enjoyable
Yes, I very much like the pace of this book. Great story line. I think you will enjoy it.
None actually stood out. For me that's a good thing. No one character stole the scene. This story is actually the best one thus far.
