Mystery Bookshop owner Ellery Page and Police Chief Jack Carson are diving for the legendary sunken pirate galleon Blood Red Rose when they discover an old fashioned diver’s suit, water-damaged and encrusted with barnacles. Further examination reveals the 19th Century suit contains a 21st Century body. Who is the mysterious diver? No one seems to be missing from the quaint and cozy town of Pirate’s Cove. Was he really diving for pirate’s gold? And if not, what exactly did he do to earn that bullet hole in his skull?
This is book 5 in the series, and continues the world with the established couple of Ellery and Jack, as the world comes knocking on their door.
I have to say that I felt like this book bounced around a bit too much for me. I struggled some to get into the story, from the beginning.
This established couple is fantastic, and have enjoyed them a lot. However, this book felt a bit stilted to me. There is a lot going on, and for a mystery, not everything is solved to my satisfaction. The ending was, rough, abrupt, and left me feeling a bit disappointed.
I’m hopeful that this is an anomoly, and book 6 brings it right back around.
