Tallant for Trouble by Christopher Nicole
Murder in paradise…
A West Indian paradise of warm sun, hot pink sand, blue waters and no income tax, Grand Flamingo is prospering under the benevolent dictatorship of John Castanos, who steered the nation to independence.
But beneath the glittering surface, racial tensions and private emotions erupt without warning into terrorism, riots and murder.
Good thing Colonel Munroe Tallant, Grand Flamingo’s Commissioner of Police – and a man full of humour, tolerance and understanding – is there to dig deep and uncover the mystery.
Tallant for Trouble is a must-read tropical mystery, perfect for fans of Robert Thorogood.
Born in the West Indies, British author Christopher Nicole has won international acclaim for his historical fiction.
