Murder On Mustique by Anne Glenconner (Hardcover 2020) from the author of the Sunday Times bestselling memoir Lady in Waiting

A storm. A disappearance. A race against time . . . 

Mustique is in a state of breathless calm as tropical storm Cristobal edges towards it across the Atlantic.

Most villa owners have escaped the island but a few young socialites remain, unwilling to let summer’s partying end. American heiress Amanda Fortini is one such thrill-seeker – until she heads out for a morning swim and doesn’t return. Detective Sergeant Solomon Nile is just 28 years old and the island’s only fully trained police officer.

He quickly realises he needs to contact Lord and Lady Blake, who bought the island decades ago and have invested time, money and love creating a paradise. Jasper is in St Lucia designing a new village of luxury villas but Lady Veronica (Vee to her friends) catches a plane immediately. Her beloved god-daughter, Lily, is on the island and this disappearance has alarming echoes of what happened to Lily’s mother many years ago.

Lady Vee would never desert a friend in need, and she can keep a cool head in a crisis. When Amanda’s body is found, a murder investigation begins. Nile knows the killer must be an islander because flights and ferry crossings have stopped due to the storm warning, but the local community isn’t co-operating.

And then the storm hits, and someone else disappears . . .
