Merryll Manning: Trapped on Mystery Island
by John Howard Reid
Trapped on Mystery Island is first in a series of highly acclaimed mystery suspense novels published in England, even though hero Manning is a Miami police sergeant with a young, pocket-sized girlfriend. From the eerie cover to the final paragraph, I was hooked. You must read this book. The setting is a mystery weekend on a deserted island in the Florida Keys, where a real killer is on the loose.
