"Water's Edge" by Robert Whitlow
As always, Whitlow writes in a clear, concise manner that is easy to read and uses very descriptive words. The main character's law specialty, however, is not so easy to understand. I struggled with the specifics of offshore accounts and which sorts of rules apply to whom and finally just skipped the logistics. It was enough for me that Crane understood it, and I was able to follow the story without having the technical details straight. (If you're a financial genius, I'm sure you'll have no problems - I'm just more of a cash-on-the-barrel girl.)
It took me a bit longer to get in Crane's head than it has in Whitlow's other books, but by the third chapter I was hooked. I couldn't wait to find out how Crane would solve the mystery. With mystery, intrigue, suspense, a bit of romance, and a search for God thrown in, this book is not your typical paperback.
If you're a mystery lover, be sure to check out Water's Edge!
I received a free copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review.
