Aloysius X. L. Pendergast and Constance Green are America's answer to Britain's Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. In the ongoing serious, Special Agent for the FBI, Aloysius Pendergast is drawn into what seems like a clever theft of priceless wine from a private collection. Then, in true thriller fashion, "the game is afoot" and the body count begins. Crimson Shore has something for everyone, a a mystery within a mystery as murder victims are carved with the word, TYBANE, which leads Constance Green to investigate the dark history of Exmouth. An ancient colony of witches, a ship lost on Skull Crusher Rocks with no surviving evidence of crew, cargo or wreckage. The salt marshes harbour a number of deadly secrets with a good measure of the supernatural thrown in.
Crimson Shore provides plenty of plot twists and turns right until the last page. Aloysius is missing, an intruder threatens Constance in her own home and a trusted servant dies. The conclusion to this series??? I think not. If you enjoy a thriller, try any of the Pendergast series.
I am an avid reader and like to share some of my "finds" with others.
