Boise Montague Book 2

Paradise isn’t always sweet.

Since returning to his childhood home, Boise Montague’s drinking has accelerated and he desperately needs clients for his private investigator firm of one before the life insurance money dries up.

Enter Junior Bacon, grandson of Francine Bacon of the Bacon sugar and rum empire. Granny’s gone missing.

Before long, a reporter associated with the missing matriarch winds up dead in Boise’s new office. Now Boise must contend with questions from the police, the newspaper president, and the reporter’s widow.

As Boise investigates he uncovers surprising truths about a woman seeking redemption, a family on the brink, and why no matter how hard we try, the past can sometimes never be fixed.



Going back home again isn’t just hard, it’s murder.

Emotionally adrift, lonely after his wife’s death, Boise Montague does the thing no one should ever do: he goes back home again.

Boise remembered the Caribbean home of his childhood – in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands – as a paradise. But when his best friend is murdered and the case quickly buried by local police, Boise realizes how far paradise has fallen.

With the aid of Dana Goode, a local reporter investigating the kidnapping of a real estate mogul’s daughter, Boise goes on the hunt for his friend’s killer. But he’ll find more than he bargained for – much more. Because in the once-sleepy island city of Charlotte Amalie, sun, sand, and surf have been replaced by madness, mayhem, and murder – and his friend’s death was just a warm-up.

Going home again can literally be murder – especially when your home has changed from Heaven on Earth… to a Dark Paradise.
