Family secrets and personal histories are unveiled in chapters that alternate between the 1940s and 2014 in Rosenfield’s latest (after No One Will Miss Her). Despite being estranged, the adult children and granddaughter of Mimi Caravasios gather at her rundown mansion in Maine for what could be the last time. When the body of Mimi, who was suffering from dementia, is discovered under the ice in the bay on Christmas Day, her granddaughter, Del, questions whether the death was accidental, suicide, or murder. Suspects abound: Uncle Richard, the family black sheep; Aunt Diana and her boring husband, who are deep in debt; darkly brooding Jack Dyer, the family nanny; Delphine’s mother, Theodora, who was Mimi’s main caretaker. Rosenfield provides plenty of twists and turns to keep readers guessing in this atmospheric mystery where all the characters had motive and means to commit murder, especially for the millions of dollars that Mimi’s estate is worth.
VERDICT Fans of Agatha Christie will love the red herrings and large cast of interesting characters. Recommended for most libraries; large libraries or those with large numbers of mystery readers may need multiple copies.
