Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

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.

Accident or Murder April 7 2009
By Nash Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Feisty professor Marjorie Summerharp walked into the sea for an early morning swim and never returned. Her body was picked up in a fishing net at a location strange to those who knew the tides and currents.
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?
Nash Black, author whose books are, also, available in Kindle editions.

The Woman Who Walked into the Sea May 18 2013
By Carol Abaied - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In the book "The Woman Who Walked Into the Sea" I learned much about Martha's Vineyard and fishing. Lots of fishing. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I hoped to. The writing was good and very descriptive, but the story line evolved slowly and I felt it was hard to keep track of the main characters. I never did figure out "who did it".

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Second in Philip R. Craig's Martha's Vineyard Mystery series, the love story between J.W. and Zee continues in the midst of murder and mayhem with an academic twist. I heartily recommend the whole series; to paraphrase Dorothy L. Sayers, creator of Lord Peter Wimsey, they are mysteries and travelogues with love story interruptions.
