The Breaker by Minette Walters
"The Breaker holds its secrets to almost the final page. But this expertly crafted, classic story is even more of a tease than usual. Walters narrows the field of suspects in a woman's murder, and then proceeds to persuade you, in turn, of each one's guilt. But just when you think you know who the killer really is, another clue comes along to undermine your confidence and convince you otherwise. The book begins with a woman drifting in the waves on an August night, floating in and out of consciousness... Daylight brings the discovery of [her] body on an isolated English beach...This is a book that demands a reviewer be vague so as not to ruin Walters's carefully orchestrated plot nor give away the surprises that detonate like little grenades throughout the narrative."
