Chief Inspector Henry Tibbett and his wife Emmy are spending a couple of weeks vacationing with some friends on board their yacht Ariadne. This one, unlike some Dead Men Don't Ski and others, really does start about as a vacation, but before long, he's interested in the recent drowning of local sailor Pete Rawnsley. Something about the death just doesn't sound right to Henry. He's also interested in recent jewel robbery in the area. Before long, another murder convinces him that the two are related. Now the question is, can he save Emmy from being the next victim?
I enjoyed this book a lot. You don't have to be sailor to like it, but if you knew something about boats (I don't) you'd probably enjoy it more. I still really liked it. I like the whole series and I wish that more of Moyes books were still in print.
