Harry Barnett, a middle-aged failure, leads a shabby existence. He is reduced to caretaking a friend's villa on the island of Rhodes and working in a bar to earn his keep. Then a guest at the villa - a young woman he had instantly warmed to - disappears on a mountain peak. Under suspicion of her murder, Harry becomes obsessed by the mystery that has changed his life and begins to trace back the movements and encounters that led to the moment where she vanished into the blue.

    " i would have given this three and a half stars if that were possible except for the unexpected sex scene that was explicit. It also tarnished my view of the main character, which I know was the point, but still. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie | 2/5/2014

    " Search for a missing woman who knows too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlene | 2/3/2014

    " Another entertaining, absorbing mystery by Robert Goddard. I foresaw(most of) the ending for quite some time, but still..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wyma | 1/29/2014

    " A page turner, a present mystery that is solved through past murders. Present-day Rhodes and England and Oxford of 10+ years ago. Great settings, fascinating characters, and the best of storytelling. He's been compared to Dickens and DuMaurier. I would add Greene. I have to read everything else he's published. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dirk Bal | 1/20/2014

    " a compelling story with real life characters, and suspense which ends only at the last pages of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ann | 1/16/2014

    " This book was interesting enough to keep me reading it, but I didn't much care about the characters. It was kind of hard to believe that the main character would go thru all the trouble to find the missing girl that he had so little attachment to. "

    " The BEST BOOK I've read in years!!!! So beautifully written and such great characters and arcs! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melody | 1/14/2014

    " Definitely picked up after the 150 page mark...I have a feeling that this book was quite good for the type of book it is - not my usual fair, so I feel somewhat unqualified to assess it. Written well with a good ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne | 12/29/2013

    " A bit of a slow starter -- indeed rather slow throughout. Not boring but detailed. A far better than average mystery with a flawed but likeable protagonist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 12/29/2013

    " Long story, you had to pay attention, but great ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 12/22/2013

    " My first Robert Goddard - now I must read them all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Hawley | 12/9/2013

    " Robert Goddard writes the most complex plots around. These books keep you thinking until the very end with all the twists and turns. Some nice prose too... I recommend him highly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon Meadows | 11/30/2013

    " RG is a master plotter in my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dot | 7/25/2013

    " I liked this book a lot - it had a lot of twists and turns and a unique British style. It reminded me of books by Elizabeth George. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne Herzberg | 1/22/2013

    " This was a well written, swift moving mystery with a satisfying ending. A good ending is hard to find. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/4/2013

    " Read this book for my mystery book club and I was one of the few that enjoyed the book. It was well written and I liked his use of language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Blumer | 12/19/2012

    " I did not anticipate the outcome of this story. Goddard did a good job of keeping me guessing the whole time. "
