Boise Montague’s life in Los Angeles has fallen apart. After his wife dies, he returns to the tiny island where he grew up. Unfortunately, coming home doesn’t bring him the peace he’s looking for. Things have changed drastically since his last visit. The island has moved on and so have the people he once knew. When Boise tries to find the one friend he thinks he can count on to be there for him, he’s confronted with another death. A murder. A murder that the police did not think important enough to investigate thoroughly. Boise wants answers. He enlists a local reporter named Dana, who has theories of her own, to help him dig deeper. With not much left to lose, a bone to pick with the justice system, and a relentless partner, Boise sets out to do what the police would not: solve the murder of Roger Black. The island of St. Thomas is a gleaming tropical paradise. Welcome to the Caribbean, where murder is as common as sunshine.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Gene Desrochers hails from a dot in the Caribbean Sea called St. Thomas. He grew up with minimal supervision and free-roaming animals in a guesthouse that also served as a hospital during wartime. He has spent his life steadily migrating west, and now finds himself in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife, cats, and kids. After a lifetime of writing and telling short stories, he ventured into the deep end, publishing his first novel, Dark Paradise in 2018. If you ask, he will regale you with his Caribbean accent and tennis prowess.

MY THOUGHTS -
Well I just loved this book! This was exciting, different, fun, kinda quirky and with great characters! You definitely can't go wrong with this one!
I fell in love with Boise (and Dana) but especially the two of them together. I loved Boise's island laid back but git-er-done personality. I loved that the author didn't make him out to be some kind of superhero. He was a real person that had real crap happen to him. Dana had a much stronger outspoken personality so the two of them, I thought made a great team.
This was a little difficult and slow reading at times because of the authentic Caribbean, which I loved and wouldn't have wanted it any other way. It just made you have to concentrate harder.
There were two mysteries going on at the same time, so no drag in the story-line. Loved the ending. And loved that this was the first in, what I hope to be, a whole string of Boise books! Gimme more please!
- Thank You!!
