Still Waters by Nigel McCrery is the first installment of the fast moving mystery-thriller series featuring Mark Lapslie, a British investigation agent with a rare neurological disease known as synaesthea that causes him to "taste" sound. The story opens with a horrible, violent family disaster that will have readers glued to the page and resistant to acknowledge the real world around them. Then we are introduced to Mark Lapslie and his personal journey in returning to work despite his debilitating disorder. We witness Mark deal with past issues and build new relationships while he endeavors to solve the serial murders that are occurring seemingly at random. Soon he suspects members of his precinct are withholding information, perhaps even delaying paperwork in an effort to impede his investigation, but nothing slows Mark Lapslie down.

Author Nigel McCrery spent part of his working life as a police officer before delving into a successful television screenwriter career. Following his popular Dr. Samantha Ryan mysteries, the 288-page Still Waters introduces the Mark Laslie series to North America (it was originally published in Great Britain).

I read this unique, exceptionally written book from cover to cover without wanting to put it down. According to the numerous other reviews I've read about the book, others are feeling the same way. One of the most interesting aspects of the storyline is the murderer herself - how often do you hear of a female senior citizen being a serial murderer?

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Lillian Brummet, 2008
