Witness at Large book. In many ways, it's typical Mignon G Eberhart (MGE) - a young woman discovers darkness at the heart of her family and close friends, and learns that she really doesn't know these people closest to her as well as she thought. The protaganist is in many ways an outsider, who finds herself – at least in her own eyes – increasingly isolated as time goes on. MGE has a tendency to be a little predictable, so it’s best not This was a quick, short read.

--Book Description--
Death walks a fog-shrouded island. The pretty young girl called Sister sees Tom, the man she secretly loves, pulling a woman's body from the water--or is he dumping it?--while holding a hammer in his hand. No, she's certain that Tom would never kill. But if they report the death as a murder, Sister's testimony will surely make Tom the top suspect.

At the urging of their adoptive father and his lawyer, Tom agrees to present the death as a tragic accident and marry Sister so she can't be forced to witness against him. But the unknown killer is still out there, and Sister saw something that she doesn't realize is significant. As she tries to figure out who the murderer is, the murderer moves to strike again...

--My Review--
"Witness at Large" is a suspenseful mystery with a historical flavor since it was written in 1966. The details about the characters and setting were good. The suspense was created from the relationship tensions (including Tom's fiancee trying to win Tom back when Tom and Sister suddenly marry) and the subtle threats the murderer is leaving for Sister. The characters were interesting but didn't have much depth. While I did suspect who the murderer was, I wasn't sure until very near the end and shortly before Sister figured it out. So it was an enjoyable "puzzle" mystery.

There was no sex. There was a minor amount of bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this novel as an enjoyable mystery that's similar in style to Agatha Christie's.
Tom with a hammer and Mildred dead are observed by the narrator, Sister. She obeys the Sahi's instructions and does not call the sheriff. Tom couldn't have killed Mildred, Boyd couldn't have killed her, and so, who could have killed her? It is inconceivable that the Sahib killed her. Leaf Trace, an author, could not have killed her. The list is too short and the island too small to arrive at a likely killer.

So, the mystery is presented to the reader in interesting fashion. As good mysteries are, it is a puzzle. Mildred had called the Sahib senile. Tom is surprised some of the others don't want to find out who murdered Mildred. They want him to elope with Sister to give himself an alibi or to prevent her from testifying against him.

The mystery has psychological ramifications. Someone among the characters agreeing to sell the publishing business formerly owned by the Sahib has caused the result of one and then two deaths. Murders on an island resemble a country house mystery. It is colorful and spooky.
