Ten hopeful contestants. A popular island-based reality TV show. And one headless corpse . . .
Bronzed, beautiful and hungry for love, the contestants on ‘Sex on the Beach’ – the most-watched show on TV right now – are all there for one thing: fame. Holed up together in a glamorous island paradise, what could possibly go wrong?
It’s been five weeks now and the group are tighter than ever, even if some friendships are beginning to fray and unlikely allegiances are being forged in their place. But when one of the contestants is found brutally murdered, what should have been a summer of sun, sea and sex soon becomes a living nightmare.
With no-one able to get in or out of the complex, the murderer must still be among them. And they’re not done yet . . .
Shutter Island meets Love Island in this first instalment of Beach Bodies . . . look out for parts two and three later this summer!
Praise for Ross Armstrong

‘Ross Armstrong has created a brilliant hero in Tom, and this novel is an enjoyable addition to the psychological thriller genre. Five Stars’ Heat

‘An eerily atmospheric reworking of Hitchcock’s Rear Window’ The Guardian
‘Addictive and eerie, you’ll finish the book wanting to chat about it’ Closer
