As in every mystery, I was sure I had the identity of the killer guessed midway through the book…silly me…so many suspects, so many dubious characters, some funny looking, others unsavory, mysterious and some beautiful. But only one is the killer and right from the beginning, the author supplies the reader with a remarkable assortment of suspects.
And like all good writers, the author's mischievous talents lead the reader on some misguided paths and taken in my some “red herrings” throwing us off the trial and causing us to suspect them all at one time or another. But as the book nears it's thrilling end and the suspect list grows shorter and you're reasoning powers grow stronger fooling you into thinking you know who the killer may be… that’s when something happens and your theories go right out the window and like all great mysteries, it’s not until the very end that the author reveals his killer. I may have been a little closer in my guesses this time as to who the killer was, so for that I feel vindicated for feeling a bit smug and thinking I’d solved the "who done it", about 3 chapters ahead of time... but truth be told, in the end I didn't have a clue and I was shocked and greatly surprised when "Tom Logan" put the facts together to reveal the real killer. Wow. What a book, what a read, what a writer!
Tony Piazza makes the improbable probable. He grabbed hold of me from page one and never let go. When I'm reading a mystery novel I'm always trying to think ahead, but he had me bamboozled, guessing to the very end, and entertained throughout. His main character, Tom Logan, is a fascinating example of everything you'd expect in a classic private detective.
If you like mystery novels, you’ll love this. A highly ingenious jig-sawing plot makes this one of today's best thrillers in the genre. Don't sit down expecting to solve this one, because that feat seems entirely impossible.
Set in August of 1933, private detective, Tom Logan and his brand new wife, Rita, take the train to their honeymoon destination, a wonderful hotel on Coronado Island. They soon realize they’ve chosen the same place and weekend as a bunch of unusual and quirky people, and they learn that a large mystery writers’ convention will be taking place at the same time.
Of course the honeymoon doesn’t go as Logan envisioned thanks to a huge storm and of course, a murder. Though he doesn’t want to interrupt his honeymoon, he’s drawn into the investigation as is his wife.
I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery with its unusual murder weapon, all the wonderful suspects, the ambience of the hotel and its resident ghost, Tom’s adorable dog, the many twists and turns, the surprising ending, and at the end, the hint of more adventure and mystery solving ahead for Tom and Rita.

I've been a fan of Tony Piazza mystery novels from day one.
Tom Logan is a real character of that era , with the style that I love , brought to life by the author in great detail.
This is another brilliant Tom Logan mystery.
Full of twists and turns, loads of storylines that you'll have to grasp and unravel before Tom Logan does.
Excellently written by a guy who knows the art of "who-dunnit"......Loved it.
