Review published on December 27, 2017.
There’s nothing I enjoy more than a good crime thriller and if it involves a murder, then so much the better. Set on a Caribbean island that you remember from holidays, great. The whole scenario of this book had me hooked and I couldn’t wait to get started. The story kept me interested from start to finish, with plenty of action and twists and turns to keep you guessing. The characters were believable, so were the situations they found themselves in. I could immerse myself in the culture and West Indian way of life with Detective Raythan Perry and his colleagues. Even the visiting Scot Sean Harris seemed authentic and overall I enjoyed the book. BUT why are readers treated as idiots by the phonetic writing of accents and dialects. If reading about a West Indian or a Scot I know they will have certain ways of speaking. It really is irritating.
