TROUBLED WATERS is a murder mystery, set in the Channel Islands in the 1980’s, with flashbacks to WW2 during the German occupation. The location is Longuey, a small (fictional) island off the coast of Guernsey.
Teenager Robbie is caught up in a murder investigation, when he discovers a drowned body on his first day home from boarding school. The holiday island run and managed by his parents is descended on by police from the mainland. Their questioning probes island residents, hotel staff and guests, and day-trippers. As secrets from the past and present are gradually uncovered, Robbie faces uncomfortable truths within his own family, and realises his idyllic island home will probably never be the same again.
A Cracking Good Read!
A brilliantly written murder mystery which soon becomes a page turner. It has a cleverly calculated plot with lots of moving parts, a rich cast of just enough characters in an atmospheric setting, where you can smell the sea, and an unpredictable ending with a completely unexpected surprise in the tail. I highly recommend it!

It is a great read. I basically read it in one sitting. I always wanted to read the next chapter, then the next, then just one more to find out what was going to happen and to get to know the characters in the story better.
