When an old friend's husband goes missing, she calls Cindy for help. Fresh from her own tragedy, Cindy returns to the Caribbean, this time to the gorgeous, lush island of Grenada, to find him.
Cindy, still grieving her own husband's death, stays at her friend's incredible villa on the ocean, as she does her best to help track down her friend's husband, Ames. As Cindy investigates, she meets the different characters on the island, some local, some fantastically rich, all of whom seem to be involved with each other, either romantically or in shady business dealings.
As Cindy uncovers secret affairs, odd money dealings and drugs, she realizes there is a complex web on the island, hidden from public view. And as she digs deeper into Ames' life, she is shocked to discover how many secrets he had been hiding from his wife - and that she never really knew the man she loved. The police at first refuse to take her seriously, but they soon gain respect for her tough intelligence, courage and determination. Cindy's relationship with one cop in particular, Mattheus, develops in unexpected ways, as they give each other solace from their losses. But Cindy digs too deep.
Soon, she finds her own life in peril, as she heads into the dark underside of the island. Startling developments in the investigation lead to a shocking ending, as a body is discovered, and Cindy alone must find out if they've convicted the wrong person....
Second in series and enjoyed just as much as the first. Suspense, romance and beautiful scenery, love the series and will carry on . Excellent narration
This book brought back memories of islands I've visited in the Caribbean. When you mentioned going to parts of the island most people never see I was reminded of driving to a pharmacy for medication for a patient on the ship I saw the dilapidated buildings in the same block. On the next street were signs of wealth.
Another island's hospital had chickens on the grounds. Family members brought and cooked food for their sick relatives. The handling of syringes and needles was medieval.
I'm retired now, but your books make me want to go back one more time. Can't wait for the next in series.
