Eric is an American in a remote fishing village in Jamaica. He owns a bar and the ruins of a hotel that was damaged in a hurricane. Now, the hotel is cut off from the mainland.

As the story begins, Shad, Eric's bartender and right hand man, sees what he thinks is a goat on the island. On closer view, it is a woman. Eric rows out to see what she is doing on his island and finds the woman, Simone, wants a place of peace and quiet. She will pay for the mortgage if she can be left alone.

Shad is a person who people feel confident in revealing their problems to. One day, two men come to the island with evil intent. Shots are fired and the men leave quickly.

Simone becomes the talk of the village and Eric becomes fascinated with her. However, life goes on and then two men arrive and begin asking about Simone and the political views of people in the village.

The setting is well described and the leisurely pace of the novel allows the reader to slow down and enjoy the pace of life as described in Jamaica.

This is described as a detective story but it's more of gossip. However, the author is skillful in her plotting and the novel was entertaining.
