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.
