Publisher's Summary

Murder is killing the mood at a yoga tourist destination.

As dawn breaks on the Canary Islands, a fisherman discovers a woman lying dead on the rocks nearby, her body arranged like a piece of art. To solve the case, Chief Inspector Diego Quintana gets unexpected help from Swedish journalist Sara Moberg, who runs the Scandinavian newspaper on the island, as well as from handsome former investigator Kristian Wede. But not even that can stop the killer from striking again.

As the death toll rises, the mood darkens, and Sara and Kristian race to find the killer before another tourist falls prey. But who is the culprit - an island local with a grudge against the tourists, a visitor on the run from trouble in her home country, the womanizing local yoga instructor, or the person they least suspect?

Don't be put off by 1st chapter

If you aren't comfortable with sexual scenes, the first chapter may put you off. But don't let it. The book doesn't focus on that and I'm mystified as to why that scene was chosen as the opening.

The main focus of the book is a woman whose husband is lost at sea. Then she and her son are caught up by a man who turns out to be a lout, but the woman cannot put him aside. Her son suffers because of it. Pay attention to names and timeline. It's important to keep track of who the players are.

Well written and tastefully done, it's not a romance novel like the 1st chapter may imply.
