it was amazing

I really enjoyed Dark Paradise. I thought the book well written and the multiple mysteries kept me engaged throughout. Author Gene Desrochers’ detective, Boise Montague, is no Sherlock Holmes, but rather more like a determined, loyal, likable bloodhound who gets his answers more through dogged determination than anything else. He enjoys his Guinness (maybe to excess) and seems somewhat less than fastidious, and this makes him all the more believable and endearing.

I’d say both the story and the writing are on the lighter side of noir, but he offers a gritty description of the Caribbean island’s darker side behind the tourist beaches and luxury hotels and there is enough murder, kidnapping, and assorted mayhem to keep you involved.

Overall, a fast, fun and thoroughly enjoyable read. I highly recommend it.
