With doubts about his mental and physical ability to do the job, a British police detective is sent to help with the investigation. DI Lee Harper is everything Beckett is not - young, ambitious and by the book.
As well as tackling the new case Beckett must overcome the demons from his past.
Family loyalty, power and money are at the source of the investigation where appearance is everything and nothing is what is seems.
Can Beckett and Harper work together to find justice for the victims?
Will the idyllic island ever be the same again?
Sometimes paradise can be hell.

At first I thought this was going to be a cozy detective tale. It picked up and got better and grittier. Body turning up, person missing, police searching and mystery involved.
I enjoyed it. Narrator was good, kept good pace.
Though island police has been done before the police officer was likeable and maybe as more tales the character will fill out.
Given for honest review from Bloodhound. Thank you

Paradise Island?

This is the first book by Angela Corner that I have read. I assume it is not the first in this series. It is an enjoyable read with layers of history about people dead or missing from this sunny Greek island. It was great to feel the sun after gloomy winters' tales.

It was a curious choice to have a woman narrator when the protagonist is male, but it worked, even if it was uncomfortable at times, detracting from the story.

I shall look out for other stories by this author. Is she from U.S because some of the vocabulary is not U.K. English which is curious or else just a nod to a North American audience. It could, of course be a trend to absorb more USA words into UK English, ugh!
