The book arrived in good time and appropriate condition. Haddam is one of my favorite authors and the rest of the Demarkian series is now available on Kindle. This is one of the holiday cozys centered around Thanksgiving and a voyage on a Mayflower replica. Murder and mayhem abounds as only Haddam can portray. Read the whole series (it's ongoing), but start at the beginning for the greatest character development!

Gregor Demarkian does it again! This is another great read in this series...I was not sure who the killer was until almost the very end!

Great read as always. I enjoy her books. She keeps you guessing.

I love Jane Haddam's work and her detective Gregor Demarkian. I have read them all and am in the process of collecting them all

Gregor Demarkian resigned from the FBI when the illness and death of his wife brought his world down around him. Now he consults for police departments and others, solving murders by logic. In between he is supported by his friends, including Father Tibor of the local Armenian church and Bennis Day Hannaford, who can be stranger than the best-selling fantasy series she writes.

Gregor and Bennis accept an invitation for a trip on a replica of the Mayflower. It is a very accurate replica, even to the lack of modern sanitation. What is not true to history is the maze of power games and sexual betrayal, and once aboard Gregor and Bennis are made witnesses to a murder. With no control of the situation or the evidence, Gregor must find a way to explain the murder, and to bring the controlling killer to justice.

I count this as the first of a number of weaker stories by Haddam. It is still worth an evening, but I did not find in it the pure pleasure of Precious Blood or A Stillness in Bethlehem. But it does help develop the relationship between Gregor and Bennis. I find this important; if you do, you will want to read the book.

On the good side, this was a fast and easy read. Haddam sometimes uses oddly phrased sentences in her other books but this wasn't as bogged down by that defect in her style.
Sadly, it doesn't give a first time Demarkian reader a sense of the Armenian-American former FBI agent's thought processes. I would start with Quoth the Raven or One to Die For or another one of the series if this is your first entry into the Demarkian books.
The ending was easily guessed ahead of time.
As Haddam uses holiday themes, this one is Thanksgiving. The one piece that bothered me most was the use of Puritan throughout the book when Pilgrims manned the Mayflower. There is a differnce between these Separatists. This use of "Puritan" detracted from my absorbtion in the book.
I was not as engaged in this story as I have been in the others I've read, but even on a bad day Jane Haddam is better than most other authors. The relationships on Cavanaugh St. continue to unfold and advance, the plot is clever and it was an enjoyable experience. On to the next ...
