Publisher's Summary

To celebrate their engagement, DCI Arthur St. Just and Portia De’Ath visit the quiet village of Maidsfell in Cornwall. Upon arriving, they find the villagers in an uproar over plans to redevelop the local seafront. 

The fishermen want to build a new slipway to aid their business, but many residents worry it will spoil the view for the tourists who help drive the economy. After a heated village meeting on the issue, St. Just overhears an argument involving Lord Bodwally, an unpopular aristocrat staunchly opposed to the plans. Later, Bodwally’s lifeless body is discovered. It’s murder. 

Although Bodwally was disliked, who’d go so far as to kill him? St. Just, although an outsider from Cambridge, feels compelled to help local authorities investigate. Is Bodwally’s death linked to the seafront, his suspect business dealings, or a secret from the past? One thing is certain: The fallout threatens to change Maidsfell forever.

Terrible narration and not funny at all

I absolutely loved the first three in this series and was so excited for this one! Unfortunately, with the new narrator, it was painful to listen to. The narrator only has two voices, her normal voice and then a near growl. Everything St. Just says sounds like he's angry at everyone and super judgmental and haughty, and everything everyone else said- even the woman with the "melodious voice" - was said like a woman trying to sound like a man with a big secret and failing miserably. Now I wonder if it wasn't just Davina Porter I liked more than G.M. Malliet. The first three were narrated by Porter and were an absolute delight! This? Ugh. I'm returning it and I'm not even finishing it.
