Blue iron bars added a somber note to blue-trimmed windows. I paid the taxi driver and walked up the sloping sidewalk to a worn wooden door he upper left corner and the Bermudian coat of arms in the lower right, and the blue police standard-hung on either side of a small blue awning at the entrance. I opened the door and stepped into a small alcove with pale blue walls. The office was to the left, behind plate glass and a wooden counter. I walked to an opening in the plate glass

I read this book because my friend had read it just before we were to take a cruise to Bermuda. I thought it would give me a flavor of Bermuda, but after we toured for our two days, the book paled by comparison. The book takes place at a hotel. Hart gives us a glimpse of lush foliage and craggy hills, but nearly all the characters spend most of their time at the hotel, so she doesn't reveal the pink beaches with clear aqua water, the catamarans ferrying tourists from dock to dock, or the cheery residents with their Caribbean-like British accents. She mentions restaurants and nightclubs in the boutique-y town of Hamilton, but doesn't describe them. The writing is full of cliches -- footsteps are hurried,, heels always click, people knock on doors, but there is no answer, and Diane runs her hand through her red-gold hair again and again. I enjoy supersmart detectives like Holmes, Nero Wolfe, Sam Spade, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, but Henrie O is ordinary through and through. I felt the other characters were two-dimensional, often stereotyped (pardon the pun). In fact, the mystery seems to depend on the fact that she presents the murderer according to a certain stereotype. One important character drops out of sight for no apparent reason. In the end, the solution depends on the murdere's having committed an illegal act, so the reader who isn't privy to this matter can't possibly solve the murder. For some reason I can't analyze, it wasn't totally boring, but it was not really stimulating to me.

Another great book! This one was new to me, since this was the first of the Henrie O series I have read. As with her Death on Demand series it is hard to put down once you start. I especially liked the fact that the character wasn't 30 something! ;) As an older reader, I enjoy many novels in the category of what is called the "cozy mystery" and the puzzles they bring. Great reading. I buy almost all my books from Amazon. That way I can easily find what I'm looking for, instead of spending hours in a book store, looking for what I want and the authors I want. It's easy to shop and delivery is quick.

I just love reading anything written by Ms. Hart but I find the character of Henri O. to be my favorite. I look forward to seeing what she has been up to and she never disappoints me. I just wish she would be taken out of "retirement" and given more adventures before she really gets "too old" to be climbing cliffs, etc. I think you will enjoy reading this book. I know I have. This is about my third time reading it. Since I now have it on my Kindle, I can read it any time I want. Keep 'em coming, Carolyn!!!!!

Loved the Bermuda setting and vivid detail! Well plotted and I really like Henrie O mysteries. I have not read one for awhile and will need to remedy that.

For me, another happy, satisfying meeting with Henry O.
