"The plot, populated with enticing characters, moves swiftly; an essential read for Maron fans and mystery lovers." (Library Journal)
Sand Sharks is a undulating mystery with several plotlines running at the same time. In addition, there are very specific descriptions of the Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach area that are entirely accurate. I like Margaret Maron's writing style as she describes Deborah Knox, the lead character along with detailed history of her family and friends. This author drew me back to her books because they integrate North Carolina history and culture with the plotline of each book. I will continue to read this author's works because each one is uniquely entertaining.
I have read all of the Judge Knott books, I'm a huge fan of Maron's, and I live in NC. However, I just couldn't get into this novel. A lot of it had to do with CJ Critt's sleepy voice. I found myself thinking, "get to the point already". My two star-rating also came from the fact that there were too many details pulling me away from the main focus. I think this book would be better read than listened to. Plus, in this novel, Deorah Knott didn't seem like her good old Southern girl self.
I don't plan on finishing listening to this audiobook and I'm sorry I used my monthly credit on it. Read Judge Knott's earlier stories - far more intriguing.
