MT Review: Death on a Longship [Paperback]

I've finished reading "Death on a Longship" by Marsali Taylor.

Product Description

When she talks her way into a job skippering a Viking longship for a Hollywood film, Cass Lynch thinks her big break has finally arrived - even though it means returning home to the Shetland Islands, a place she hasn't set foot on since she ran away as a teenager to pursue her dreams of sailing. When a dead woman turns up on the boat’s deck, Cass, her past and her family come under suspicion from the disturbingly shrewd Detective Inspector Macrae. Cass must call on all her local knowledge of Shetland, the wisdom gained from years of sailing, and her glamorous, French opera singer mother to clear herself and her family of suspicion - and to catch the killer before Cass becomes the next victim.

My Review

Cass Lynch is haunted by some parent issues since her teens.  When she becomes a skipper for the longship that is connected to her father's movie production company.  When she happens upon a dead body it makes her think about her troubled relationship with her parents and how it all ties in with what's happening.

She discovers accidents on the set aren't really accidents but someone killing off cast members.  Cass and her father are suspects and she discovers this movie set has secrets.

The setting is in Shetland and we get to see how they speak in their native language.  Cass spends most of her time reflecting about her past which was interesting.
