Intrigue in Paradise (Book 3)
Annie Bryce’s life is in turmoil. She’s haunted by fears of revenge by a known killer and despairs over breaking up with partner Steve. And it’s all downhill from there.
Desperate to earn money, she agrees to help out with some work with retirees on Australia’s glittering Gold Coast, exploring times past with them. This is how she meets the ageing industrialist Jack Riversdale. The irascible Jack has no interest in nostalgia – he wants action. His time is running out and he’s driven to find out what happened to his two sons. One died recently – was it murder? That’s what he believes, though the police insist it was suicide. He wants Annie to uncover everything she can. His older son has been missing for decades – can she find any clue, any trace of him at all?
As her investigations escalate, Annie is sucked into riptides of break-ins, pursuits, threats, even abduction. What really was the fate of his two sons? Why are those old home movies so crucial? Who wants them so badly? Who can she trust? Are the police involved in some cover-up? Of what?
The action is set against Australia’s fabulous world-famous playground on the Pacific coast – but it’s also the crime capital of the country and a haven for crooks of all persuasions. This is a shadowy, shifting scene.
Traumatised and injured, Annie knows she must be closing in on the truth, but the undertows drag her ever deeper into the murky past before she finally delivers to Jack the real story about his family.
Intrigue in Paradise is the third novel in the Annie Bryce mystery series.
