Fans
of Agatha Christie will find much to like in this modern tale set on an island
off the coast of France, not far from Ile d ’If where Dumas’ Count of
Monte Cristo
was imprisoned.  A luxury hotel is welcoming its
first group of guests.  They will enjoy absolute seclusion as the island
does not have cell phone service or fast internet.  Judge Antoine Verlaque
and his companion, law professor Marine Bonnet, are looking forward to spending
time together amid the rugged spectacular beauty of the island and enjoying the
peace and quiet. That peace will be shattered when one of the guests is
murdered.  Who is the killer?  The American couple? The poet? The
widow? The Parisians? Or could it be one of the staff?

— Deon Stonehouse
