Burn All Your Bridges by Edna Dawes
To stay alive, they must uncover the truth.
At a reception to mark the opening of a skyscraper hotel in Singapore, Barbara Dayley is shaken to find her ex-husband, Nick, among the guests. Barbara has become a cabaret star, and Nick a man at the top of the construction business – the aims for which both sacrificed their marriage. But are they happy with success?
An explosion wrecks the reception, killing Nick’s friend, and Nick returns to his other project in Penang, convinced murder was done. Barbara is persuaded to go with him and it is soon plain that Nick is now the target for the killer.
On the lush island of Penang and in the isolated Malay village on stilts, Barbara and Nick strive to stay alive to discover the truth about the murder, and about their own happiness.
Burn All Your Bridges is a vintage romance thriller with all the suspense of a classic murder mystery.
