Sheldon Harris Came Home Dead is a story of secrets. Nearly every character—alive or dead—is harboring a secret, some deadly to their most valued relationships, others just plain deadly. As Greg and Devon move closer to exposing the killer’s secret, they also move closer to exposing their own. What I most liked about this book is the way the human drama plays out against the backdrop of nature and weather—the ocean, the rocks, a hurricane, and heat. It’s almost like nature itself is another character. The hurricane cuts the island off from the rest of civilization, as if Mother Nature decided to dump the rest of the characters into a Petri dish and see what develops. If you enjoy cozy mysteries that take place in isolated settings and build to an exciting climax, then you’ll enjoy Sheldon Harris Came Home Dead (love that title!).
One dead body. Multiple suspects. Severed contact with the outside world. These are the bones of a classic mystery; this author skillfully builds upon this proven stock plot, and delivers a strong, beautifully-toned story that is fresh but still cozy. A fierce hurricane has cut her characters off from the support of mainland-based police and a forensic lab as it wreaks havoc on the fictional island of Caleb Cove, and leaves a dead body in its wake. A burnt out cop is forced to step in to recover the body and begin the investigation with the help of the heroine, who has secrets of her own.
Ms Reid clearly loves her east coast home, upon which she based her setting, because her descriptions make you feel the bite of salt air and hear the shriek of gulls around you. Her characters come alive with personality quirks and local dialect. And the mystery has twists and turns that will shock and surprise right to the last page. I can't wait for the next book in the Caleb Cove Mystery series.
