Rating: Rating: 4 out of 10 stars (4/10)

This novel was a disappointment; it received rave reviews from The Global And Mail and mystery-related publications, so I had high hopes, and with its science theme (astronomy) I had to give it a try. It’s about the mystery behind the death of a Canadian astronomer in Hawaii. The protagonist is sent from Canada to investigate it, and she discovers there are a lot of politics and intrigue behind why he died.

I stopped reading it about half the way through; it bored me. I didn’t care about the mystery. The characters seemed superficial and contrived, and the story was getting silly, with too much spy-like events occuring to be credible.

The Canadian author received rave reviews for their first book, Dead Water Creek, but I have my doubts about it now if it’s anything like this one.
