    This one has the bones of a good story It is a shame that some of the reading enjoyment went awry due to poor editing proofreading on the publisher s part.

    this book does not appear to be edited The proof reader must have used spell check and never did the actual reading The story was good but I had trouble with the poor quality of the written word.

    While maybe not as good as Nantucket Red Ticket. Mr Axelrod s latest addition to his Henry Kennis Mystery series, I did enjoy this almost, if not as much as I did the newest one Apparentely, while choosing this book, without realizing it, I chose the first book instead of say the 4th or say the 2nd That s not to say I didn t enjoy it One of the reasons I gave it a 3 star instead of say 4 or 5 is partially due to me having trouble at times following along with conversations in the book, missi While maybe not as good as Nantucket Red Ticket.

    I give this 3 1 2 stars Henry Kennis is the police chief in ultra wealthy Nantucket He came from California and is divorced He is low key, amiable, and smart He writes poetry in his spare time I found that to be mostly irrelevant When rich, obnoxious Preston Lomax is found murdered it seems just about anyone in town could be the culprit Lomax was hated by his wife, sons, all the carpenters and painters building his McMansion, and the the local newspaper editor, just to name a few The pol I give this 3 1 2 stars Henry Kennis is the police chief in ultra wealthy Nantucket He came from California and is divorced He is low key, amiable, and smart He writes poetry in his spare time I found that to be mostly irrelevant When rich, obnoxious Preston Lomax is found murdered it seems just about anyone in town could be the culprit Lomax was hated by his wife, sons, all the carpenters and painters building his McMansion, and the the local newspaper editor, just to name a few The police and state investigators seem to want this solved and solved quickly, so they latch on to each suspect and hope that they have the right one But Henry wants to think it through He isn t satisfied to jump to the easiest solution It seems there are secrets in the small, elite community Lomax had a drug habit, his wife was unfaithful as most of the characters seem to be , and Lomax was planning on sneaking away without paying for his home or the big mall he was planning to develop I found Henry to be an engaging protagonist and this was an enjoyable quick read

    The story itself was good, but the punctuation and grammar were horrible I think the author mentioned in Nantucket that he was looking for a new editor because of this sort of thing If you can get past that, it s a pretty good read.

  6. says:

    this mystery has many twists and turns and great descriptions and humor and for anyone who knows the island, he describes not only the landmarks, but the emotions of the residents to a tee it grabbed me from the first minute, and never let me go.

  7. says:

    Throughout Chapter One Preston Lomax lists the various people who want to kill him along with their motivations Chapter Two begins with Preston Lomax murdered From their the author takes us on a back and forth journey as we follow the actions and thinking of police chief Henry Kennis investigating the crime paralleled with the actions of the suspects leading up to the crime A fascinating read and construction.
