MURDER AT PARADISE BAY by Colin Barrow

£6.00

Set in the present time, two working ladies, Christine and Rose, arrive on Paradise Island for a two-week vacation and stay at the Blue Lagoon situated at Paradise Bay. They find themselves integrated with a few other guests that are staying there for much longer durations and are regular returnees. This is the first time since Christine married Peter that she has left him on his own. It seems even as they just arrive, Peter is on the phone with a crisis at home. These crises continue giving some of the humour throughout. Sandra, a private detective and undercover, is not a regular visitor but has been there for almost a month as she is investigating a case of fraud. As she nears the truth she is murdered. This is followed by another, Colonel Meecham. As the local Police draw a blank as to motive and who, Alfredo, the waiter/barman suddenly remembers Sandra using a USB memory data stick on the hotels guest computer. It is found and the murderer is discovered, but who is it? The final short scene sees Peter suddenly appearing to surprise Christine in quite a sensational way that has been part of the fun and topic of the phone call story line. His impromptu surprise weekend stopover has taken him all day Saturday to find her and his return flight is during Sunday!
