Publisher's Summary

A storm. A disappearance. A race against time....

Mustique is in a state of breathless calm as tropical storm Cristobal edges towards it across the Atlantic. Most villa owners have escaped the island but a few young socialites remain, unwilling to let summer's partying end. American heiress Amanda Fortini is one such thrill-seeker - until she heads out for a morning swim and doesn't return. 

Detective Sergeant Samuel Wilton is just 28 years old and the island's only fully trained police officer. He quickly realises he needs to contact Lord and Lady Innerleithen, who bought the island decades ago and have invested time, money and love creating a paradise. Jasper is in St Lucia designing a new village of luxury villas but Lady Veronica (Vee to her friends) catches a plane immediately. Her beloved god-daughter, Lily, is on the island, and this disappearance has alarming echoes of what happened to Lily's mother many years ago. Lady Vee would never desert a friend in need, and she can keep a cool head in a crisis. 

When Amanda's body is found, a murder investigation begins. Wilton knows the killer must be an islander because flights and ferry crossings have stopped due to the storm warning, but the local community isn't co-operating. And then the storm hits and someone else disappears.

Ridiculous

I am not sure if this is the start of a 'cosy' detective series - the 'detective' being a wealthy Lady and landowner, or a tourist guide for Mustique. But what did drive me nuts is the mention of Princess Margaret in every 3rd sentence to start, and towards the end about every 7th sentence. (I wonder if the author had to ask permission from the Queen). Then there is the mention of every good deed she and her husband did for the Islanders. The narration was good but the whole story was quite ridiculous!

Loved it!

Lovely easy listen. I enjoyed how beautifully descriptive it was, you could picture yourself there. I hope I’m one day lucky enough to visit Mustique for myself 😊

It’s ok..

Well read and performed by the narrators, but too much elitism and name dropping to appeal to me. Story required too much suspension of belief even though I suspected it would. A cosy murder mystery and should be listed as such.

A perfect Winter read

Takes the reader to the sun kissed shores of Mystique. Clearly the author has written about an island she knows so very well. An entertaining but not challenging read!!

Really enjoyed this audiobook

I’ve never been to Mustique but I’ve been nearby to Bequia, a long time ago. This brought it all back beautifully, I loved the story, the characters, the scenery, and the narrators.
