Set like his previous effort on Martha's Vineyard, Craig's second entertaining mystery serves up bluefish and adultery spiced with academic jealousy and local lore.

From Library Journal
Fisherman, ex-Boston cop, and sometime sleuth J.W. Jackson ( A Beautiful Place To Die ) searches for an explanation of the drowning death off Martha's Vineyard of crusty, opinionated scholar Marjorie Summerharp, an excellent swimmer. Suspecting murder most foul, J.W. looks for motive and opportunity among the woman's acquaintances, including the Lothario-like coauthor of her soon-to-be-released article on a lost Shakespeare play and the slick pair operating a questionable "health retreat" for the wealthy. Local atmosphere suffuses each page as the seemingly minor plot develops dire complications and culminates in a captivating drug-induced and storm-wracked conclusion. Most enjoyable.

J.W. met the quick witted and acid tongue professor at a party, she was entering her final year to retirement with a new book to enhance her towering reputation as a scholar.
Philip Craig's THE WOMAN WHO WALKED INTO THE SEA gives the reader a insightful view of the realms of higher education with academic jealousy, financial rewarding religious practices and adultery forming a deadly triangle of deceit. For whom was the professor's demise the most beneficial?

This is one that I've not yet read from the series. Love this series as they are based on an island in the North Atlantic on a nearby island.
JW Jackson is a retired cop and loves living off the land and has a love interest Zee who works at the hospital. They get together often and share food, recipes and just being together.
THis book finds them attending parties and being introduced to others who are there on the island. They are in the English field and one of them has located a Shakespeare partial play that no one even knew about.
She has a habit of swimming at 6am everyday but one day she doesn't come back from the ocean.
Lots of fun, drama and gossip, so many laughs. Things don't add up and the woman's professor friend hires JW to investigate and he finds many discrepancies.
Love catching up with the others on the island.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
