DEATH IN PARADISE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery
Henrie O has adjusted to life as a widow, even starting a new career as a professoruntil she receives mail suggesting that her husbands death in Hawaii years ago was no accident, but the aftermath of a murder/kidnapping.
Never one to turn down a challenge, Henrie O journeys to Hawaii to interview the family of the murder/kidnap victim, the family her husband was staying with at the time of his death. Putting aside her own fears and doubts, Henrie O soon uncovers the dark secrets of a murderous soul.
DEATH IN PARADISE is a sterling example of why cozy mysteries, with the emphasis mainly on the puzzle, remain a perennial favorite. Hart is a master plotter, and in this stark tale, her murderous muse shines brightly. Readers will be kept guessing throughout the book until the satisfying, surprising conclusion. (Mar., 304 pp., $6.50)
