Paradise Kills

He should be dead.

Frank wakes up in hospital, the survivor of a terrible helicopter crash in the Gulf of Mexico. Two month’s later he’s still got a limp, needs a cane to walk, but knows how lucky he was.

He’s given an opportunity to finish his recovery in the Caribbean and jumps at the chance. A spot of deep sea fishing, a rum cocktail or three, relaxing by the pool—sounds like paradise.

But it’s not all fun in the sun, as Frank seems to attract dead guys like flies to a fresh corpse.


Frank stumbles across the remains of a slain Coast Guard Petty Officer, and partners with VIPD Detective John Chaney to investigate. The team link several recent murders and realize they may have a serial killer on the loose. The perp is hiding in plain sight, but with no leads, Frank and John are grasping at straws. As a hurricane bears down on the island, the killer strikes again and Frank is out of time.


Justice must prevail, but maybe this time the killer is smarter than Frank.


Paradise Kills is the third explosive novel in the Frank Dalton Coast Guard series, and is set on St. Croix, the largest of the US Virgin Islands.
