In this modern homage to Agatha Christie’s Evil Under the Sun, sassy ghostwriter Roxy Parker finds herself on a remote island retreat with a collection of fabulously wealthy guests, shifty locals and biased police officers—all of whom she must rely on to help solve the mystery of who killed resort owner Abigail Lilton.
Abi has just been murdered and buried in a plot on the side of the beach—an exact replica of a macabre local burial tradition. Horrified, Roxy doesn’t know where to turn, but Abi’s daughter Helen is pointing the finger firmly in the direction of the hotel staff and guests. Each has a secret worth killing for.
As the cocktail-sipping writer attempts to piece that fatal morning together she encounters knife-wielding villagers, ghoulish local traditions and an island paradise where the ghosts of past mistakes still linger behind every coconut tree. With a cracking pace, tropical setting and eclectic cast of characters, this mystery will have you scratching your head until the final, Hercule Poirot-style conclusion.
And it will make you look twice at your fellow guests next time you take that innocent island holiday...
