British writer Billingham's ("Tom Thorne" series) intriguing psychological mystery brings an ominous note to the family beach vacation. Three unlikable British couples become acquainted with one another at the Sarasota, FL, resort where they are on holiday. Just as their trip is ending, a teen-age girl goes missing and is later found murdered. The couples return to London and keep in touch through a series of dinner parties though perturbing facts about one another begin to emerge. Meanwhile, a Florida investigator and an eager Scotland Yard trainee begin to probe. The narration by Toby Longworth is sharp; he gives the characters distinct voices and personalities
VERDICT Recommended for mystery fans who like a bit of satire and lots of twists and turns.
