Serenity in paradise is murder

This is the first book by this author that I have listened to and I quite enjoyed it. It took me a while to work out each chapter starts with the name of who's perspective each chapter is about, as there was a number of suspects who wanted to kill Marilyn and you got a few of those reasons before she died. But as all three suspects could have done it the book kept you guessing until the end.
Luca and his partner are called to a private island to investigate the murder of a very wealthy lady. Being on an island limits who could have done it but with three very plausible suspects on hand things aren't that simple as the two partners try to find a way to cut the suspect list down to reveal the murder.
The narrator was easy to listen to.

Great detective novel

It quite a while since I last listened to a Luca mystery. And picking this up was like a reunion with an old friend.
Good solid detective mystery. The type of book where you just want to keep reading /listening.
And great narration by Peter Lerman.
I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this review.

A great mystery!

I liked the way in which this book is structured. Having the points of view of both, one of the suspects and the police investigating the case is truly original. Particularly when having the suspect's POV is not a way to truly cleaning him up from the crime as he is, at the very least, a very unreliable narrator. That makes it not only original but also truly engaging.

I enjoyed the rapport between Luca and Vargas, and I hope they will continue to work together.

The mystery is very well done and keeps you guessing until the end.

Peter Lerman does a good job narrating this story.

Not sure about this one

I listened to the first book in this series and loved it and Detective Luca. He's such a great character. He doesn't enter this book though until we are about halfway through. That's the first reason for only three stars. The second reason is the mystery. You really only have three suspects and even one of those could not have done it. The big reveal was the why and how.

I wanted more Luca...
