jacket cover
Charles Locks, author of Greater Trouble in the Lesser Antilles, will read.   Paradise is supposed to be all sunshine, colorful drinks, light conversation, & beach idylls—a place people go to escape their problems.   Unfortunately for Captain Brian, part–time sailor/philosopher & full–time hedonist, trouble has a way of finding him.   When his friend Leif the Thief is found dead at the bottom of a cistern, the much younger Billie insists that they team up to solve the crime.   But Billie seems to have her own stake in the case, not to mention a much broader definition of partnership than Captain Brian is prepared to explore.   Meanwhile, a federal agent & a local constable make it their business to complicate the Captain’s investigations.   It's enough to cause him to consider leaving beautiful Flamingo Bay forever.   Shady characters, an ingenious plot, & a vivid tropical backdrop make this an irresistible read for mystery fans.
