Vari Sylvester makes good use of accents in this mystery, which brings Lindsay Gordon back to her hometown of London to investigate the murder of a friend. Is the murder of novelist Penny Varnavides related to the new book she’s been working on? Lindsay is a reluctant detective but is committed to finding the truth, particularly when it’s clear that Penny’s ex-partner is the prime suspect. Sylvester’s characterization is smooth and takes good account of the relationships between the characters. She sets a strong pace, making good use of timing and pauses to accentuate the tension of the plot. Her presentation of dialogue is quick and crisp.
