About the Book

Stitch Robinson is a Toronto private eye. Disillusioned, all he wants from his vacation in the Bahamas is some peace and quiet. But first a monster hurricane batters his resort on Grimm's Island. Then the body of a beautiful socialite washes up on the beach. With power out and the island cut off, Stitch has to find the killer on his own. He's sick and tired of trailing cheating husbands. But does he have what it takes to find the murderer?

Recent Reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed both books. One night I stayed up to 2:30 in the morning, which is way past my bedtime, just to see who did it. They are both real page turners! You are going to attract people with these who don't normally buy books, as well as appeal to young adults and adult learners. I can see why students scoop them up! Even though they are darned good detective stories with believable characters and situations, they manage to stay light. They are just plain fun to read.
