Dead In The Water: A Provincetown Mystery by Jeannette de Beauvoir

A compulsive page-turner…

Beauvoir returns with another compelling mystery with memorable, deeply realized characters and genuine surprises, featuring the amateur sleuth Sydney Riley. Sydney is at her wits end with her parents settled at the Race Point Inn, expecting her to play tour guide. When the body of a kidnapped businessman washes up under MacMillan Wharf, Sydney finds herself embroiled in the middle of a winding murder investigation. Beauvoir not only excels at characterization but also in concocting plausible, fast-moving twists, keeping the pages turning. She aptly puts her characters through emotional and physical wringers, as memories from their traumatic past resurface, bringing intricacy and turmoil to their present lives. The narrative is fluid, the prose intelligent, and the central mystery contains plenty of twists and genuinely shocking moments to draw in even the most seasoned mystery reader. The fine combination of sharp, witty dialogue and a highly atmospheric setting keep the reader invested. This finely crafted, suspenseful tale with immaculate plotting will send new readers back for earlier installments in the series.
