No means. No motive. No opportunity.

No camera.

 

The last time celebrity photographer Antoine Talon was in Oahu he left under a cloud of suspicion after a tragic death at one of his photo shoots. This time he’s leaving in a body bag.

 

Discovered at a wedding rehearsal dinner on a dark rooftop, confusion abounds. Everyone says they have an alibi, there is no clear weapon, and no one had a reason to kill him. But one thing is obvious, his camera is missing and it may hold the key to unraveling the mystery.

 

To solve the murder, Pari Malik must uncover the deep secrets and clever lies of the victim and the guests before the killer strikes again.

 

“Lurking in Paradise” is the third novel in the Pari Malik mystery series, following “Lurking on the Tightrope: Mystery at Diamond Head” and “Lurking on the Precipice.” It can be read as a stand-alone book or as part of the series.
