"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Christy Moreland refuses to believe her beloved father, Adam, committed suicide at Spindrift, despite the overwhelming evidence. In fact, Christy is convinced that her mother-in-law, a powerful, intimidating woman, knows the truth. All roads converge at that Newport, RI, mansion. As clues are unearthed regarding Adam's last days, it becomes clear that Christy's own stay at Spindrift could have deadly consequences. Shelley Thompson, a seasoned narrator, resists the opportunity to over-dramatize the narrative, allowing the story to do the work. Her selection of voices centers each character at their heart, rendering them distinctive and as accurate as a single-point-of-view narrative allows. While certain aspects of the 25-year-old story are rather dated and melodramatic, it contains no sex or profanity. Recommended. Jodi L. Israel, MLS, Jamaica Plain, MA
