Soft ocean breezes. Warm sand between your toes. The hint of vanilla and frangipani on the air.
It would have been the perfect vacation: two carefree weeks in a luxurious beach home on the exotic isle of Mo’orea. Sun and sand and swaying coconut palms.
Then on the way over some stranger on the airplane falls asleep and dies. But it was no accident, no simple misfortune. Death never is when Beckett’s around.
Was the man’s untimely demise connected to the coins? Spanish doubloons from half a century before any European set foot on these islands, found gleaming in the shallows of a Tahitian black pearl farm.
Torture and kidnapping and murder: the holy trinity of any good vacation. And Beckett’s in the thick of it, trying to make sense of dead bodies and hidden motives and the presence of old Spanish gold.
Gold that has no business being in Tahiti.
