Ron Añejo loves his carefree lifestyle in the Caribbean, cruising from one dodgy job to the next in his barely-seaworthy boat. It takes chutzpah and more than a little optimism — when your strongest skill is managing to get by, legal work can be hard to come by, even if you actually had a work permit. And who can bother?
Trouble is brewing on an island paradise. Not only is there a stranger sitting out on the boat of that nice French couple looking all suspicious, but Martha's skillet has gone missing. She's starting the morning fixing up and it ain't in its place. It gotta have been thieved! Johnny gotta find out who doing them things.
Old Sweet ain't gonna build no more boats...
On the Caribbean island of Kayakoo, a local boatbuilder named Sweet is found dead on the beach. Detective Johnny Cliff needs to find out what happened to him. With a little help from a friend from a Scotland Yard detective who is there on vacation, he follows the typically twisting and curious trails an island investigation can take.
Marrying Bart gave Lisa money, position...all the things she'd thought important. But he was controlling and boring. She was trapped. On vacation in Mexico she decided to have a little fun. But the fun caught up with her; now she's being blackmailed. So one problem became two. But a clever and impatient girl like Lisa isn't going to let that stop her. Maybe she can solve both at once.
Why did somebody kill that man?
The mysterious death of a popular figure at a Caribbean resort has inspector Johnny Cliff wondering why someone might want him dead. He didn't seem to have any enemies, but there's no question it was murder. And he still has to solve the case of Henderson’s dog disappearing. It’s busy times on the island.
