Winner of the Midwest Book Award for Commercial Fiction, Greater Trouble in the Lesser Antilles is the vivid tale of Captain Brian, a part-time sailor/philosopher and full-time hedonistic hero in the paradisiacal Caribbean. When his friend Leif the Thief is found dead at the bottom of a cistern, the much younger, seductive Billie insists that they team up (in more ways than one) to solve the crime. Meanwhile, a federal agent and a local constable make it their business to complicate Captain Brian's carefree existence, driving him to consider leaving beautiful Flamingo Bay forever.

Charles Locks was born and raised in St. Paul, MN. Few of the skills he perfected in the US Marine Corps during fifteen months of service in Vietnam translated to civilian life, so he majored in English literature at Macalester College. Locks owned and operated Lucy's Restaurant on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, where he lived for several years and met the characters that populate Greater Trouble in the Lesser Antilles. He was a co-contributor to Cass Gilbert, Life and Work: Architect of the Public Domain, published by W.W. Norton in 2001.

Charles Locks’ smart, clean prose sails through the shark-filled waters of paradise and sinks more than a few whodunit clichés along the way.” Chuck Logan, author of Homefront
