Responding to a rescue call in the Indian Ocean, Captain Daniel Tengky discovers a mortally injured man and his traumatized wife. Jake and Virginia had put all their money into a yacht, planning to explore the high seas together. On the beaches of Amarante, they became entangled with a motley crew of expat sailors. When Tengky arrives, she confesses: "It's all my fault. I killed them." Now it's up to Danial to determine just how much truth there is in Virginie's alarming tale. -- Adapted from jacket

    In in her thrilling debut novel, Bamford draws on her own experience of abandoning city life and a career in journalism for sailing around exotic islands (about which she's written two memoirs). Malaysian naval captain Danial Tengku and his crew respond to a mayday message in a remote corner of the Indian Ocean. Confusion deepens when they find a frantic woman and her injured husband on a vessel that they have no apparent connection to. When pressed, the woman blurts, "I killed them." Bamford immediately jumps backward in time to introduce English newlyweds Virginie and Jake, who have embarked on the adventure of a lifetime: selling everything to buy a yacht in Malaysia so they can sail and live independently. They are drawn to the lure of pristine beaches on faraway paradise island Amarante, and they set off. They delight in Amarante's unspoiled beauty and the camaraderie of other sailors. But when they are joined by an enigmatic couple, unneasy alliances form and suspicions descend as events shift quickly in once captivating, now threatening waters. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
