Aruba: one happy island, just not now…

Feisty Dutch journalist Tara Linders goes to Aruba to research an article about successful young entrepreneurs. When she meets a Flemish girl in distress, they fall on a completely different story.

With the help of her colleague Diego Martinez, Tara goes to investigate, and discovers that the island also has some very dark sides. Together they open a bigger can of worms than they had ever thought possible: the luxurious island life appears to be no more than a bubble about to burst. And when the residents turn against her, she will have to fight for her life…

Birds of Paradise is the first book in a series featuring Tara Linders and Diego Martinez.
