Set on a tiny volcanic island in a Mediterranean archipelago on whose beaches the corpses of three young Black men wash up, this novel pits individual choice against community pressure. Narrated by Nicholas Guy Smith with world-weary intimacy, the audiobook explores how the island's leaders react to this tragedy--and how their careful plans are disrupted when an outsider arrives asking questions. Everyone has secrets, even the superintendent who takes charge of the investigation. But though it's called a mystery, this audiobook is more of a rumination on the darker sides of human nature: greed, self-interest, and brutality. Listeners will be absorbed by the author's ability to transform these very real characters and their setting into a contemporary morality tale.
