The Body in Blackwater Bay

The Body in Blackwater Bay
by Paula Gosling

Homicide detective Jack Stryker and his girlfriend, Kate Trevorne, are vacationing in Kate's family cottage on Paradise Island. There are ten cottages on the island that have been handed down among the island's original families. These islanders know each other well, having spent their summers together. Daria Grey, Kate's childhood friend and now a successful artist, has come back to her family's cabin to hide from her abusive husband. Daria is afraid that her husband has followed her to Paradise Island. She hasn't seen him but she senses his presence nearby. One morning Daria's husband is found shot to death on her lawn. Kate nudges Jack until he offers to help the local sheriff, Matt Gabriel, with the investigation. Since Gabriel is the sheriff of a rural area, he hasn't had a lot of experience investigating murders so he accepts Stryker's offer. Together they follow the maze of greed, deception and conspiracy to a surprising end. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Donald Harstad, K.C. Greenlief, and Mary Louge.] -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Staff
