This is one of a series. Main character, Henrie O, is an older woman (70s)who was once a newspaper reported and now writes mystery thrillers. And, of course, she finds herself in the midst of murderers.Here Henrie O is recruited by an old lover to find out who's trying to kill him. He gathers all the suspects to his private island (I'm not kidding) and then holds them captive because he controls the only boat off the island. Someone attempst to murder him, someone blows up the boat, there's a hurricane... I didn't really care whodunit because i didn't like any of the characters. Henrie O solves the case, looks like a lot of the suspects were guilty of something. No interest in reading any more Henrie O stories.
