Intent on clearing her name, Mer approaches the task as any scientist would – by looking at the facts. The author populates the novel with a colorful cast of characters who either help or hinder Mer’s investigation, which keeps the reader guessing the “who, why and how” until the end (as any good mystery should).
Adrift isn’t a rompy cozy mystery, nor is it a raw, blood-and-guts thriller. It has the perfect level of suspense made all the more enjoyable by Browning’s Sorkin-esque dialogue and wry humor.
Browning, who lives in the Keys and is a diver herself, also had a career in law enforcement. Both passions lend authenticity to the book, the first in a series. I look forward to Mer Cavallo and her cohorts having a long run in the mystery business.
This gritty, traditional mystery is part thriller and hooked this reader immediately. Unlike many of the disappointing, insipid paranormal mysteries on the market of late, Adrift is a convincing read with enough romance and setting development to draw readers of Cozy mysteries to its pages. Browning’s inclusion of entertaining dialogue on Shakespeare and Roman Catholic theology reveal her respect for her readers’ intellects. If you like the no-nonsense style of Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone, I promise this deep water dive of a mystery will not give you the bends. Download it today!
