A Killer Opening

Amelia Ferver has been set the challenge of a lifetime by her beloved, if eccentric, late Uncle Sebastian.

The terms of his Will are this: Amelia will inherit everything, his townhouse in Belgravia, his yacht in Cannes, and best of all, the beautiful Mediterranean Island of El Pedrusco, which he had called home for the last 25 years.

She’ll get it all if she can build a spa hotel on the island, and open its doors with a grand gala opening, by the first anniversary of his death. If she fails…she will get nothing.

Now, after months of backbreaking hard work, and with Uncle Seb's one-year deadline looming large, the celebrity guests dock at the island's rickety old jetty, ready for the pre-opening publicity junket. In that instant, Amelia's smooth sailing turns to stormy seas, when the mysterious stranger who had been all but shipwrecked on her doorstep just a month before turns up dead.

Can Amelia solve his murder before she is forced to cancel the gala opening and lose everything she ever dreamed of?
