Muder in the Raw by C.S. Challinor

One for the Mystery reader.

Rex Graves, Scottish barrister, is summoned to St. Martin to help solve the odd disappearance of French actress Sabine Durand. What his "friends" forgot to mention is that she disappeared from an exclusive nudist resort. He has many suspects: her rich older husband, her young studly possible boyfriend, the influential (thuggish) developer with the shady past and a penchant for jewels. All with interesting alibis, almost all of them naked as the day they were born....except at dinner where they all wear wraps on their bottom half.

Not usually a mystery reader myself, this one sucked me in. Not like Poirot or Miss Marple, but such icons took some time to take their hold on readers. Hopefully this will not be the last Rex Graves novel penned.

Check out Rex's other adventures in Christmas is Murder. You might also like the Alex Cross series by James Patterson.
