Dark Paradise pulls you into the darker side of island life on St. Thomas. Amid the tropical paradise, the tourists, and cruise ships, lurk shadier characters. When Boise arrives on the island, his childhood home, he is dropped in the midst of it all, charged with shining a light on the darkness and unearthing the secrets that lie there. This book has much more than murder. I loved the different characters, their unique personalities, and the snappy dialogue perfuse with island lingo. I can’t wait to see what mystery Boise pursues next.
