Stranger on the Shore - Josh Lanyon

Great mystery with a romantic element. It's not the solution to the mystery that is surprising but the way it unravels, even if the reader suspects how it will end, there are all these pieces falling into place in an eloquent style that makes it such a page-turner. I especially enjoyed the connection to one of my favorite classics, THE GREAT GATSBY. I loved the atmospheric quality that reminded me of Fitzgerald's style. The characters are well drawn and the mystery unravels at a great pace.
