Warm, witty, surprising and endlessly entertaining, Murder on Mustique draws on Lady Glenconner's wealth of knowledge about the island and love of storytelling to create a gripping murder mystery. It delivers perfect escapism!
Some girl dies. Film editor Marissa has read better loglines for films, but still jumps at the chance to travel to a small island to work with the legendary - and legendarily demanding - director Tony Rees. But she soon discovers that on this set, nothing is as it seems. There are rumours of accidents and indiscretions, of burgeoning scandals and perilous schemes. In the midst of this chaos, Marissa is herself drawn into an amateur investigation of the real-life murder that is the movie's central subject. The only problem is, the killer may still be on the loose. And he might not be finished.
