A liar and a charmer, Jim Rush is a young American with a weakness for trouble. On the run from the British police - he's wanted for a murder he didn't commit - Jim finds a hideaway in St. Elena, a small Caribbean island where his English girlfriend, Jane, has secured them an invitation.
Quickly tiring of the snobbery and childishness of Jane's uppercrust friends, Jim feels trapped. On the one hand, he can't seem to avoid a paparazzo bent on snatching pictures of Princess Diana on a neighboring island; the photographer, Jim knows, would be well paid for a shot of the man on wanted posters throughout London police stations. On the other hand, to stay among Jane's set means enduring the taunts of an egotistical host and joining in their puerile games.
Jim can't resist playing a game of his own when he encounters a couple of small-time hustlers who claim to have found sunken treasure. When Jim attempts to turn the tables on these con men, the result is murder. Jim is once more a wanted man - and this time he may not get away so easily.

Lesley Grant-Adamson has published 16 novels and has a writing fellowiship at Cambridge University.From AudioFile:
Edmund Dehn brings his extensive experience in British film, television and theater to this thriller about a fugitive con artist held captive by his megalomaniacal host on a Caribbean hideaway. Dehn's ease with dialects makes his narration a treat to hear. As the main character, Jim Rush, Dehn produces a believable American accent, although the Briticisms in the author's writing often cause the character to lose credibility. Dehn proves to be a flexible performer, though, and delivers a fantastically convincing dialect for Martin Peters, a native of the southern English countryside. In the end, Dehn's work makes the audiobook a thrilling listen. R.A.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
