Out of the blue, Edward's daughter is kidnapped by the dangerous serial killer supposedly behind all the recent crimes. Edward and Margaret race against the clock to save their daughter, but time runs out, and the crimes keep piling up.

Samia, a luxury prostitute, seems to be the only witness who can identify the murderer. Who is really behind the deaths of several millionaires on one of the world's most loaded tax havens? Why is money leaking out of their accounts? Can Edward save his daughter in the middle of a category 5 hurricane?
This latest of many Grenadian-inspired books provides a useful supplement to the exclusively Grenadian-oriented volumes of recent years. Six of the articles represent conflicting interpretations of Maurice Bishop's New Jewel Movement and the US invasion of 1983...Formats and foci for the other Caribbean pieces vary, but they establish clearly that domestic, not external forces are what shape political development in the Caribbean, making arguments regarding Grenada's (or Cuba's) threat to the region less credible...[The] editors put the events in Grenada in perspective, a task that has long been overdue. For all levels. Choice The Caribbean After Grenada examines the major political and economic developments in the Caribbean since the events of October 1983 in Grenada. The contributors represent a range of ideological viewpoints--from neo-Marxist to conservative--and thus offer an unusually balanced and informed discussion of the lessons of Grenada and the problems of revolution, conflict, and democracy faced by contemporary Caribbean societies. Coverage is extremely broad in scope and encompasses all geographic regions, from the islands furthest out in Atlantic to the Central American Republics, all major regime types, and all cultural/linguistic areas. An ideal supplemental text for courses on comparative politics, the Caribbean, and economic development, this volume brings a much needed historical perspective to the study of events since the Grenada crisis.
Tobias Doring uses Postcolonialism as a backdrop to examine and question the traditional genres of travel writing, nature poetry, adventure tales, autobiography and the epic, assessing their relevance to, and modification by, the Caribbean experience.
