Publisher's Summary

An isolated community...a web of secrets...a mysterious death.

When a body washes up on the shores of Brownsea Island, DCI Lesley Clarke initially suspects suicide. But as she gets closer to the island's close-knit community, she starts to suspect foul play.

Why did the victim argue with her closest friend days before her death? What secrets is the victim's manager keeping? And can Lesley get to the bottom of the mystery before someone else dies?

The Island Murders is a tense, gripping crime novel perfect for anyone who's imagined living in a coastal idyll and wondered if it's really all it seems.

A bit less Suspenseful

I love this series and the narrator. This one seemed a bit more transparent and I knew who the killer was half way through. Also I think it was more to set the stage for the book and progression of Leslie and Elsa relationship. But still highly recommend!

Enjoyable

This is the third book I have read and the third in the series. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only are there murders going on but there is a story with the main characters, I can't wait to find out what happens next in the fourth book.

Superb series

I’m a big fan of Rachel McLean and her work and am happy to recommend Rachel’s Dorset series. Jan Cramer pulls you into the story and guides through each chapter as if you were a character yourself. If you love a good murder mystery then this series is for you.

Good story but not good narration

I am really enjoying these books, but I am starting to really struggle with this narrator. She reads a few of the authors that I enjoy which is a shame. She has a peculiar way of narrating speech, which makes characters sound either exasperated every time they speak, or like over enthusiastic children. To be honest I had a job following the story because I was so focused on thinking "why is she reading this like that?" - a shame because these Dorset books are good.
