This is a story on the German occupation of the Channel Islands during WWII. The Germans planned for the Islands to become a vacation destination and had therefore somewhat friendlier relations with the locals. Although undercurrents of the nastier side of the Nazis are woven throughout the book, like the mistreatment of the "foreigns" and the "hospital" they are building that is more like an abbatoir. All of this is the background to a disturbing murder mystery.

I didn't enjoy reading this book. It was a confusing read, in that it was hard to follow the characters's moves and motivations. The murder mystery was secondary to everything else and didn't play a major role in the story at all. When it was finally solved, it was a big let down. Anyway, I can't recommend this one.
