In the past year, Jazz Stephenson's lost her eye, her job, and her Canadian status. She's had to move home to Nassau, Bahamas, to live with her father and to resume her old position at a local paper, working for a woman she hates. The only thing that keeps her sane is the renovation of her grandmother's house in the historic part of town. But when Haitian labourers begin to die on her work site, Jazz faces bankruptcy, arrest, and death and not necessarily in that order. Can her new affiliation with Trim Romer, a member of the construction crew, help or hurt? Were the labourers killed because they knew too much about the smuggling of humans through Bahamian waters? Whats the significance of the vodou symbols that appear in the belongings of the dead men? And can Jazz find the answers before she loses everything?
I'd be much more interested if I knew more about "smuggling of humans". Is everyone in Bahamian waters non-human? or do you perhaps mean getting people into a country without all the boring paperwork?
And any man named Trim...well, sorry, but I'm laughing my head off at that one.
Your best line is: Jazz faces bankruptcy, arrest, and death and not necessarily in that order.
It reflects a sense of humor I always look for in books.
