This mystery has plenty of twists and turns to delight even the most discerning mystery lover. The story begins in the Bermuda Triangle. After an abandoned sailboat is found, a mystery compounds upon another mystery, which begins to unfold about Em's uncle, a man Em adored, but apparently did not know as well as she previously thought in her younger years. When Em sets out to find out what happened to her missing uncle, she learns he and a female friend of Em's had a bit of a history neither had mentioned to her previously. What else was he hiding, a murder, stolen money?
This story is fast paced and held my attention from the first paragraph until the last sentence. I read the story in one day, basically, because I could not put it down for long.
I loved both books in this series, but The Bitter End was my favorite of the two stories. Probably because I felt like I already knew the main character from reading the first book. I am looking forward to reading more stories about this highly skilled and intelligent female boat captain, who is a survivor in the most dire circumstances.
I highly recommend The Bitter End and now eagerly look forward to the third book in this series. An excellent writing style and compelling stories make for enjoyable reads. This author has moved up to the top tier level of my favorite authors.
All in all creating a perfect abduction scenario for the TV cameras, except for three things: identifying name and numbers have been scraped off the boat’s hull, missing log books, a large tear in the mainsail rendering it useless, except the tear is not blown out by wind and storm, but cut with a knife. But the protagonist, a widow and yacht delivery captain, recognizes the yacht, she had been on it many times over the years.
Add to all that, the profession captain protagonist finds herself at that very spot as the Captain for a ship attempting to solve the “mysterious Bermuda Triangle,” hired by an expository TV program and everything captured on camera.
There is no romance, other than past; no sex, other than brief references to past lovers, as such. It ends with a subtle hint of the possibility of future romance for the widow-captain with one of the players in the story. I like romances, therefore because the tenuous implied future needed more sustenance, in the main body of the story with more positive implications for the future.
