Description

There’s nowhere to hide from international intrigue and murder most foul even on an island as small as Guernsey. Second in the Moretti and Falla Mystery series.

In St. Peter Port Harbour on the Channel Island of Guernsey, Detective Inspector Ed Moretti and his partner, Detective Sergeant Liz Falla, are called in to investigate the shooting death of arms dealer Bernard Masterson on the Just Desserts, his luxury yacht. Why are Masterson, his glamorous partner in crime, Adèle Letourneau, and his thuggish bodyguard here on the island? And how are an ex-Folies Bergère dancer, a former espionage agent, and a wealthy sax-playing financier involved – or are they?
With the knowledge that there’s nowhere to hide in a world now as small as his island, and not knowing whom to trust in a mystery involving money and international intrigue, Moretti goes to London in search of answers, returning to Guernsey for a violent showdown on the Just Desserts.
Watch for Blood WIll Out arriving September 2014.

Editorial Reviews

London has Holmes and Watson, Sweden Blomkvist and Salander, and Yorkshire Dalziel and Pascoe. And now Guernsey has its very own literary detective duo – Moretti and Falla.

— Guernsey Press

Characters are glamorous, talent is everywhere, and like the ubiquitous cigarette in movies, murder and water set the tone.
