Diver's Paradise (2020)
(Roscoe Conklin Mystery, book 1)
Davin Goodwin
"Cops don’t retire to laid-back Bonaire to be targeted for murder, but Roscoe Conklin is the exception. With the grisly murder of his former partner back in the States, Conklin finds himself tangled in a web of lies, deceit, killings and mistaken identity. And all he wants to do is play his banjo on the porch. Tightly written, Goodwin’s debut novel captures the relaxed, easy going life in Bonaire, then shatters it with explosive energy. You won’t put this book down till the last page!"
