Judge Deborah Knott can’t wait to trade the lush fields of Colleton County for the clear blue ocean and long stretches of sand at Wrightsville Beach. A summer conference for the North Carolina district court judges couldn’t come soon enough for Deborah, who is overwhelmed by her newly married life and the responsibilities of being a mom.

Lying beneath the hot summer sun in Wrightsville and reconnecting with old friends over delicious seafood dinners in nearby Wilmington, Deborah finally begins to unwind. But tensions are building beneath the surface of this seemingly peaceful resort area. Deborah’s relaxing trip to the seaside takes a sudden, dark turn when she stumbles upon the strangled corpse of one of her less-admired colleagues. It doesn’t take long before she realizes that the killer may have another target, much closer to home.

Unwilling to stand idly by while the murderer draws near, Deborah begins to investigate alone. At each turn, her list of suspects grows to include everyone from her judicial colleagues and friends to local television personalities and restaurant employees, and soon it seems that anyone in Wilmington could be capable of murder.

    " Judge Deborah back in fine form, Starting to worry a bit about my recent need for escapist fiction! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Artha | 1/15/2014

    " I just love this series, I love the characters and Margaret Maron writes great plots!! Always a good read!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paulette | 1/7/2014

    " Margaret Maron continues the saga of Judge Deborah. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sian Jones | 1/7/2014

    " I just don't like it when the mystery doesn't involve Dobbs. There, I said it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean Perry | 1/5/2014

    " It was o.k., not one of her best of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 1/2/2014

    " Maron's latest is much like Evanovich's latest but more satisfying: the formula and characters we love are still there, but there's just enough freshness in the setting at Wrightsville Beach and a judge's conference to keep you reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 1/1/2014

    " I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I'm a sucker for books set in North Carolina! I'm not sure that this is my favorite Margaret Maron book, but is was a good listen over the last few days. I'd recommend it, especially for readers/listeners familiar with the Wilmington area. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 12/17/2013

    " This was an entertaining "car-listening" mystery. Funny conversations between characters. I will get more tapes by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindig | 12/15/2013

    " Particularly enjoyable as it's set in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach, where I grew up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tdevany | 12/13/2013

    " although not as good as some of her others "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trudi | 12/12/2013

    " Interesting Deborah Knott murder mystery. A murder occurs when Judge Knott is at a conference. Not surprisingly, she gets involved in solving the murders (which turn out to be multiple). Kind of a typical murder mystery. Good "beach reading" type of book. In this case, narrated by C.J. Critt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 12/2/2013

    " Totally could not pick the murderer this time. It's always good to visit down south for a while. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debi | 11/18/2013

    " Abysmal. Unless you like to spend most of your reading on what clothes the characters are wearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 11/1/2013

    " A fun read for me. I enjoy Margaret Maron and her Deborah Knott series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elaine | 10/31/2013

    " Ilike her books for a little brain candy,but this one was a little more ho-hum than usual "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wilhelmina | 10/12/2013

    " I would have to consider this book a weak link in a series I usually enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison Dellit | 10/3/2013

    " One of Maron's most tightly plotted books, I enjoyed this one for the defined setting, and, I must confess, insight into the bizarre judicial system in the USA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jewett | 6/14/2013

    " A different setting but really fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Jane | 5/14/2013

    " Takes place in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Norma | 2/12/2013

    " Latest in the Judge Deborah Knott series. Deborah attends a convention at the beach while her husband is away at his own convention. Murder ensues and the Judge searches for the killer and tries to avoid getting killed herself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie T | 9/8/2012

    " Judge Deborah Knott is in Wilmington for a conference when she finds one of her colleagues dead. A good mystery. I enjoyed reading it since it took place in Wilmington, one of my favorite towns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 2/20/2012

    " I'll always read the next Judge Knott installment even if the story gets to be a bit thin. I give the author credit for moving the locations of the stories around the state (NC) to get it some credibility. Missed Dwight in this one though, hope he returns to the next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 refgoddess | 11/15/2011

    " I was looking for a cozy mystery to read on my break, and this fit the bill. But the story is contrived and the characters ho hum. No need to read any more of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 9/26/2011

    " too many loose ends that weren't tied up...at least to my satisfaction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 8/22/2011

    " Not quite up to par with others in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 4/22/2011

    " Judge Deborah Knott #15 -- Deborah on her own at the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 4/12/2011

    " Another good Margaret Maron read. I enjoy the fact that she sets these books in North Carolina, and that makes it easier to visualize the story as it unfolds. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 3/21/2011

    " A fun read for me. I enjoy Margaret Maron and her Deborah Knott series. "

    " I love this series, and while it's been a few years since I read a book in it, I'm glad to have picked this one up along with the one before it and after it. Great books, great characters, and the years' absence didn't matter -- I was able to pick up the book with pretty much no confusion. "
