Heading for Lord Howe Island from their usual crime scenes in Sydney, Detectives Cooper and Quinn were about to enter the lives of reality TV contestants – whether they wanted to or not. One of the contestants had been found dead in her bed; it was up to Cooper and Quinn to find answers.
Interviews led them to believe not all were telling the truth – but who knew more than they were letting on? Would the show go on or could the contestants go home? Cooper and Quinn were so far out of their comfort zones they felt the battle was uphill all the way…
Dark Paradise is #4.5 in the Cooper & Quinn series by Aussie author Catherine Lee, and although of novella length, it was great to catch up with the two detectives again. I thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining read and am looking forward to the next in the series – Dark Streets – hopefully soon. Highly recommended – but do read the series in order 😊
A small island off Sydney in Australia witnesses the death of a participant in a reality television show. Of 12, six already eliminated. One of the remaining six is found dead and post mortem reveals strangulation as cause of death. Detective Cooper and his partner Quinn investigate the murder. Quite crisply portrayed are the investigation and questioning of witnesses. Well written novel and good read too.
