Product Description

A Deadly Learning’ – Faith Mortimer

When author and private investigator, Diana Rivers travels to Portugal for a holiday, murder is the last thing on her mind.
On the first day of her visit, nothing bodes well at the International College of Portugal when a woman’s body is found interred behind a wall during renovation work. The striped plastic tape around the crime-scene portrays a sense of profound unease.
What with students practicing sexual rituals in the sand dunes, a suspicion of a drug factory and money laundering plus a rash of killings, her plans for a quiet break go awry.
Diana is in her element.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended murder mystery 10 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this the sixth book in the Diana Rivers series, author Faith Mortimer delivers another absorbing whodunit with all the depth, mystery and intrigue we’ve come to expect. As in all of her writing, it’s the attention to detail – that ‘you could be there’ feeling – that sets the story apart from more routine mysteries. You feel you are right there alongside Diana as she meticulously investigates a double murder in an International School on the Algarve in Portugal. The clues – and red herrings – are many but Diana picks her way skilfully through the evidence to identify those responsible. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A whodunnit that sparkles 12 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received an advance reader's copy of this book in return for an honest review.

I've always been an admirer of writers who an craft a convoluted, yet convincing plot that can keep me gripped right to the end of a story without me guessing whodunnit before the very end, and A Deadly Learning by Faith Mortimer is just such a story.

I changed my mind several times along the way before the identity of the culprit became clear. Good red-herrings (essential), the perfect setting to engage the reader's senses, great and varied characters are all necessary, plus good pacing and the right tone and language to carry the reader along with the story without worrying about meaning. In this story, Faith Mortimer has carried off all these essential components in an excellent story that will keep the reader intrigued right to the end. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another top read from Faith Mortimer! 25 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Faith Mortimer is my current favourite author. As with all of her books, A Deadly Learning is a real page turner, full of suspense and mystery. The plot is well crafted with many twists and turns. You won't know who did it until the end!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery and mayheam 19 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The more books I read by this author, the more I like her writing. She reminds me of that other great British author Agatha Christie! The writing flows evenly and the plotline develops well. This author captured the atmosphere of the setting from the very beginning. A thoroughly good read.
