Boiling Rock

Remar Sutton, Author British American Publishing $19.95 (260p) ISBN 978-0-945167-40-2
On Grand Bahama islandok lc/eed , around the tiny village of Boiling Rock, strange doings are afoot. Dolphins swim ashore to die, a body disappears from a graveyard and several tourists drown inexplicably--all within a few terrifying days. Amateur sleuth and genteel Southern lady Evelyn Wade, seen before in Long Lines , is convinced that the incidents are related and sets out to discover how. In this literate, well-crafted mystery, Sutton incorporates such disparate dark elements as voodoo, head-hunting, biological warfare and drug-running without once straining credibility. Wade's partners in crime-solving include Mama Da, a voodoo queen; Jon Rumble, an ex-missionary with a terrible secret; and August Clevenger, a rather eccentric journalist with a fondness for shrunken heads. Together the members of this unlikely quartet must strike at the forces arrayed against them, before their island paradise is desecrated and more lives are destroyed. (May)
