Paying the Piper - Sharyn McCrumb Another Elizabeth McPherson mystery where the ending came really fast, and in this case, the mystery pretty much resolved itself. I was wondering when were going to come back around to Keenan's murder. I guess I should have figured out the killer sooner, since the predicament of everyone being stranded on an island and incommunicado bears a strong resemblance to Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None." I would really like to see Elizabeth trying to catch a wild seal and get its collar off without getting bitten. Also, the constant shifts in point of view were annoying. You have to get your bearings at the beginning of each section and figure out if it's Elizabeth's travel journal, or Cameron (just talking to himself, I guess), or the semi-omniscient narrator.
