    The Whaleboat House, by Mark Mills, is a murder mystery It takes a meandering approach to the genre Character development relatively irrelevant to the plot takes up much of the almost 400 page novel As far as the murder mystery part of the plot, I thought it was thin, at best Though much time is spent on character development, it is mostly the good guys who are being developed The lack of development of the bad guys made it difficult to believe the motivations behind the killing Also, The Whaleboat House, by Mark Mills, is a murder mystery It takes a meandering approach to the genre Character development relatively irrelevant to the plot takes up much of the almost 400 page novel As far as the murder mystery part of the plot, I thought it was thin, at best Though much time is spent on character development, it is mostly the good guys who are being developed The lack of development of the bad guys made it difficult to believe the motivations behind the killing Also, the clues were revealed in a disconcerting jumble In fact, the killer is revealed in a sort of off hand manner very anti climatic.Two minor complaints Fishing jargon I know Mills was trying to give life to the setting, but I felt that the fishing jargon was not explained well enough for a layperson to understand For example, there is a scene where the characters are harpooning swordfish and somethin...

    A really good book Well written with a vivid setting and time period The plotting was smoothly done and the characterizations, from the leads to minor players, were quite realistic Very impressive for a debut and I was not the only one who thought so since it won the New Blood Dagger in 2004.
