Shadows On The Island

Shadows On The Island

The Caribbean island of St. James in the 1980s should have been paradise. Instead the post-independence rulers turned it into a perverted and corrupt private fiefdom. The US would not act because its government is anti-communist and American privateers wanted to keep it that way. Britain didn’t care enough to intervene officially. 

The disgusting practices of the Prime Minister and his family were too much to ignore, though. Philip Goshawk was sent to try to find a solution. 

In this atmospheric political thriller James Eno catches the dark mood just beneath the surface glamour of islands in the sun.

"Brims with sardonic humour." Daily Telegraph

The Full Review
James Eno's tale of trouble in paradise is a doubly nostalgic antidote to the modern thriller's fixation with big bangs and silly body counts. It's set in 1982 but cheerfully harks back further to the pre-war "Clubland Heroes" - gifted amateurs who went out to bat for Britain armed only with wit, finesse and a pistol for emergencies. Pining for a time when resourceful chaps toppled despots with style and guile, this book brims with sardonic humour.
