Publisher's Summary

When the body of the glamorous film star Margot Browne washes ashore, Max's former colleague, Patrice Logan, requests his help. It's a perfect closed-circle murder: Margot must have been killed by one of the actors, stylists, scriptwriters, or second-tier royalty aboard the yacht. Patrice suspects the yacht's owner, a playboy film director she's been keeping tabs on for smuggling, but Max isn't so sure. During his investigation, Max uncovers secrets about the star's life that make him wonder if Margot was killed to help keep her lurid past in the past. As Max continues his investigation, though, he uncovers a host of motives, and it seems that Margot wasn't the only person onboard with a secret to keep.

    "Very disappointing"

    Pathetic ! I had enjoyed previous Max Tudor novels by this author. This one, though, was incredibly boring. Eventually, I did the audio equivalent of speed reading just t get it over and done with.

    Story
    "Four Stars First 3/4 of book, 2 Stars for the End"

    Michael Page, the narrator, does a great job, He raises the quality of the book dramatically.. And the first 3/4 of the book was solid. The characters were for the most part well defined. Unfortunately, I found the ending very unsatisfactory. It felt as if the author suddenly had enough pages,needed to end the book and had no idea how to do that
    .
    I want a mystery to challenge my thought process and at the end I want to see the logic of how the author pulled all the strings together. Don't just throw the end together and toss in some last minute facts to justify the choice. That is an insult to the reader.

    "Disconnected and disappointed"

    I was disappointed with this installment. So far Ive enjoyed the Max Tudor mysteries but this one seemed to have no real connection to Nether Monkslip or the characters in the previous novels. Did not enjoy the mystery or subject.. Hollywood actors..very boring. Maybe this would have been better as a stand alone novel. Just really disappointed. Also, the narrator cant seem to do American or women's voices. Please consider another narrator. Did not work for me.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you like the series this one is not as good as previous stories although the conclusion is enjoyable. Somehow this one doesn't have the gusto & magnetism of the others. Too cumbersome with nothing much to raise the suspense.
    I am sorry to be so harsh but this is not up to the standard of the 5 preceding books


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The end was most interesting but the lead to it was slow & laborious.


    What does Michael Page bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Lovely voice, for me just right for Max & the other voices are fine. Just makes you forget it's all one person reading.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    The promise of the next book given at the end of this one hopefully indicates a return the previous form
