This book feels like an experiment that didn't quite work. The plot seems forced and the dialogue not up to the standards of the authors when working individually. I like both Tapply and Craig when working alone, but here not. Each character starts with a case which then (surprise, surprise) merge together. I mean really. Another element that really pissed me off was the totally unnecessary "reading" by a fortune teller that just happens to provide the clue needed to prevent catastrophe. I mean really. Supernatural elements strike me as just an author being lazy because he/she can't figure out a rational explanation. It's not that I need a complete explanation of events, but why certain people were where they were and why and who was working for whom and why just didn't add up. ( )

First words
There are two weekly newspapers on Martha's Vineyard: the Vineyard Gazette and the Martha's Vineyard Times. Both deal solely with island issues and neither makes much pretense of separating its editorial views from its news coverage. The papers are like dueling banjos, predictably taking opposing views on almost everything.
Between them, the Gazette and the Times gave strong evidence that Shaw was right when he defined a newspaper as a device unable to distinguish between a bicycle accident and the collapse of civilization.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"International superstar entertainers, top politicians, a former president, and the social elite will come together at the Celebration for Humanity, a musical extravaganza to be telecast live around the world. Headlining the show is legendary singer Evangeline, who's flying in from her Scotland castle, accompanied by her young daughter, Janie." "Vineyard fisherman and sometime private investigator J. W. Jackson isn't much interested in pop music, but he agrees to take a job as the gorgeous Evangeline's driver and guide. The money is good and the company is intriguing." "J. W.'s Boston lawyer pal, Brady Coyne, also has business on the Vineyard. His old friend Mike Doyle is dying, and Mike wants to reconcile with his daughter Christa, who is rumored to be on the Vineyard, before it's too late. Can Brady find her in time?". "J. W.'s assignment gets deadly serious when the Celebration's director, Odgen Warner, is found murdered just days before the show is to open. Warner was known to be gruff and demanding, but his death is a shock to the cast and crew. Was it a random killing, or is there a murderer among them who might strike again? Could Evangeline be the next victim? Or is she a suspect?" "The search for young Christa Doyle also turns complicated when Brady discovers that a charismatic religious leader may be holding her on an Island compound against her will. Christa and Evangeline live in very different worlds, yet Brady and J. W. find that they must weave together every thread of evidence if they are to save both women's lives."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
