“Part of McMillen’s genius is her ability to write in a way that resonates for both the novice and the aficionado. You don’t have to be a mystery buff to appreciate this tale, but fans of the whodunit genre will find it more than satisfying. You don’t have to be a seaman to appreciate it, either, but sailors and fishermen will read in McMillen’s descriptions of life on the water the unmistakable ring of authenticity. This is a book that will make new fans for the mystery genre, and seduce city slickers and landlubbers alike with its call of the wild.”
