Jackson's old friend Cal arrives on the island, he brings with. The late Philip R. Craig was the author of nineteen novels in the Martha’s Vineyard Mystery series. A professor emeritus of English at Wheelock College in Boston, he loved the Vineyard and lived there year-round with his wife, Shirley.

When a pre-tourist season visitor to Vineyard Haven survives a murder attempt by donning a bullet-proof vest, sometime private investigator J. W.

Philip Craig returns to a college love of fencing with A VINEYARD KILLING. Each sequence is rapier thin without the buttons as J.W. Jackson delves into the corporate structure of Saberfox.
The Fox brothers come to the island to force property owners of limited incomes to forfeit their holdings when threatened with court action to prove their property deeds. Paul Fox is gunned down when leaving the E & E Deli, but survives the ordeal. All believe his brother, Donald was the intended victim, but J.W. Jackson has to wonder if two shots over the heart was a near miss.

Romance blooms on a rocky shore on two fronts in this engaging read, that is just they mystery/suspense when your time for reading is limited.

This book opens with the worst first sentence I've ever read: "Our children, Joshua and Diana, were over on the mainland for two days, being spoiled by Zee's mother and father, and Zee and I were having lunch in the E and E Deli with John and Mattie Skye." Eight characters in one sentence--and that the first sentence in the book! If it hadn't been in a volume from one of my favorite series, I would have quit on the spot.

Another great Martha's Vineyard mystery novel from the late Phillip Craig. I actually re-read this one. Something I don't usually do, and I found it just as enjoyable the second time around.

I am pleased with this book, but must admit that it is not quite as good as his later books. I have just discovered this series by the late Philip R. Craig. I actually started the series with his last book and loved it. As I said this is not quite as good, but still entertaining. I plan to read through the entire series.

Phillip Craig books are always enjoyable reading. Down to earth and realistic. Likeable characters. I have connections to Martha's Vineyard so particularly enjoy location.

I really like Craig's mysteries about life on Martha's Vineyard. His writing takes you there.

This series is a great read for anyone who's been to the Vinyard or just wants to go. Super summer beach reading!
In this book, Craig has an intriguing plot line about a mystery man on the island and a promising plot line about an evil real estate mogul, but in both cases these are spoiled with unrealistic events occuring. The story behind the mystery man, when revealed, is a letdown and hard to believe, and the plot climax related to the real estate mogul and his brother relies on the bad guy sort of going crazy--a poor device in a mystery. These plots could have been so much better if developed and concluded differently.

There were a couple of things about this book that I thought were an improvement on the last few books in the series. It was good to have the kids play only a tiny, insignificant role this time, as they have never been realistic or important characters in this series. Like other reviewers, I was relieved J.W. was not taking them along to interview dangerous suspects any more. Zee also played a lesser role, which was a nice break from the Zee adoration that J. W. usually engages in. His constant admiration of her physical charms gets so annoying in most of his books. On the other hand, in this book Zee is just a ghost of her plucky self. This time around she spends all her time worrying about J. W., and that just doesn't seem normal for her.

I didn't mind less fishing in this book. I did miss J.W. cooking, weeding, being a caretaker--things J. W. usually does. There were not enough sections on his cooking his great meals in particular.

Finally, I find I am not enjoying or liking J. W. much any more. He seems egotistical and self-important. He is smug about his and his family's life style that doesn't include a computer and a good TV. Also, his moral world view leaves me cold. Basically, throughout this series, we find that J. W. is mostly amoral--nothing is really wrong unless he doesn't like it.
