Trapped on Mystery Island Review & Giveaway (ends 7/23)
Amazon Product Description. The first of a series of mystery thrillers, featuring Police Sergeant Merryll Manning of the Paradise Police Department. (Paradise is the author's fictional capital city of Florida, and is not based on Miami). The action takes place on an otherwise deserted island in the Florida Keys, where a number of guests assemble in an old Dominican Priory for a "mystery weekend".
Review. When a real murder occurs during the murder mystery weekend on Paradise Island the guests/players get more than they bargained for: a mystery their lives depend on solving. Because for the duration of the weekend they are marooned on the island with the murderer until Mr. Mystery (the host) returns.
Lucky for the participants one of the attendees is police sergeant Meryll Manning. He enlisted in the mystery adventure to please his petulant girlfriend Susan and claim the $5,000 prize. However, he is soon is in charge of determining who of the cast of misfits has done the deed. Manning is a colorful character who fights with the other guests (including a priest); is in a love-hate relationship with his girlfriend; but also possess a razor sharp mind. Mystery lovers will enjoy the quirky characters and should find this book a suspenseful read that keeps one guessing until the very end.
Trapped on Mystery Island, the first in the mystery series, is a classic whodunit!
