About Book

Black Marina, set on an 'island paradise' in the Caribbean, tells a story of great force and poignancy partly inspired by the events surrounding the invasion of Grenada in 1983.

Holly Baker, an English woman, came to St James during her carefree days of bar-hopping in the 1960s. Somehow she never managed to get away. Now, her loyalties fluctuating, she is caught up in the advanced stages of a drama both personal and political - and which embodies the conflicts inherent in this small, dangerously placed society. As the island and its visitors prepare for Christmas, events that were seeded at the time of Holly's arrival on St James finally blow up into a violent and chilling debacle.

'A gentle and poetic style contains a hot, explosive story.' Vogue
