    _Death Under Sail_ is a murder mystery of buttonholing tension But it is not only a top class and ingenious whodunnit, it is also a superb study of human motivation, a clever and unobtrusive comment on society, and the very best example of watertight craftsmanship.My take It s a shame that Snow didn t write mysteries This is a terrific example of the Golden Age whodunnit Kept me guessing till the very end The plot of Death Under Sail seems very simple A small party of friends five men and two w [...]

    I used to be a real fan of CP Snow, many years ago I have several of his books, mostly picked up second hand I spied this on my bookshelf a week or so ago, and thought I d re read it Not being a fan of crime fiction, I m not sure why I bothered Maybe I once was a fan of the genre I found it not particularly intriguing, although some of the characters are interesting Not to be recommended a biased view I think this one will be going back to the Lifeline Book Fair this year.

    this is really terrible A completely preprosterous plot nobody on a SMALL boat hears a gunshot with not enough good writing or characterization to make up for it one good quote It is one of life s major consolations the ease with which we bear other people s misfortunes vastly overrated.

    As he explains in the Preface, this was C.P Snow s first published book It foreshadows the elegant writing and excellent understanding of human nature which Lord Snow demonstrated through the Strangers and Brothers books of his later years And it s a pleasant little murder mystery

    i loved itcp snow is one of my fav detective writersthis book is exciting even because of its main point or essencelike when roger mills was found in his yacht by his six guests he was murdered, shot, and i couldnt stop thinking about smile on his facethis is absolutely interesting

    This is one of the first books written by Snow, and I think a good mystery, though not as in depth as his later books such as A Coat of Varnish.As a sailor, and one who enjoys just messing about in boats, this book rates a place in the bookcase aboard TIGGY.

    Coming off of reading several books by Patricia Highsmith, I found it dull It is considered a classic by critics, so I ll probably have another go at it.

    The mystery is very intricately plotted but this is definitely not my favorite of his books I found it a bit tedious.
