I bought this book because I have visited this area and thought, I would enjoy some local color as well as an RCMP police procedural. What I got was an adolescent off-color bodice ripper and poor impression of the RCMP. Unfortunately the bodice being ripped was the uniform of a female RCMP Officer. One who apparently had no resistance to the physical perfection found in very few members of the male species.
The local inhabitants were a rather secretive, nefarious, bunch involved in drug dealing and other unsavory activities and not anxious to co-operate with a murder investigation. The hero, however, ( although a suspect) was so attractive as to be "good enough to eat". Completely irresistible to the female lead investigator. Much melting, moaning, panting, light headed, behaviour ensued. Despite these distractions, the Mounties did manage get their man. Hopefully that particular RCMP squad will remain at their Vancouver head quarters and send more professional members out to solve murders.
There was some good information regarding the technical aspects of scuba diving.
