The vicious murder of a 15-year-old girl shakes the residents of Seward Island, Washington to their very souls. The victim is wealthy, beautiful, and of the sweetest disposition imaginable, and absolutely no one in the tranquil community of Seward Island can imagine the lovely teenager has any enemies who would do her any harm. As the police begin the arduous search for suspects, the murder takes the people of Seward Island somewhere else: into the realm of their darkest prejudices and worst fears, to eventually reveal a very human evil living in their midst.

I absolutely loved this book! This is the first book that I have ever read by Susan R. Sloan, and I must say that the plot was filled with intricate twists and turns that kept me totally engrossed. I thought that the writing was absolutely brilliant and I give An Isolated Incident an A+! I will certainly be looking for more books by Susan R. Sloan to add to my Wish List. ( )

This was a fairly good murder mystery with enough going on to keep up the interest. I really liked the sheriff. I thought the romance was a bit contrived. I thought the addition of Nazis along with the anti-Semitic activities and attitudes to be a bit much. There was an awful lot of coincidences in the story, and I'm not sure why the real perpetrator was never really looked at seriously. I'd probably give the author another try, but I would expect more.

Very good story and plot. Kept you guessing. I didnt like that she gave away to much on the woman cop part, turning her somewhat shady. Which was a BIG surprise. Unfullfilled ending. Need a part 2??!!
