The Body on the Beach (An Island Mystery #1) - Anna Johannsen, Lisa Reinhardt

The body  of Hein Bohlen,a social educator and the director of a local children’s home,is found dead in a beach chair on Amrum, a small island of the coast of North Germany. At first sight it looks as if the man has died of a heart attack,but his wife has doubts and demands a post mortem where poison is suspected but not confirmed. DI Lena Lorenzen and sergeant Johann Grassman are sent to this beautiful island to investigate this death. They both realise that not everything is as it should be and that the alleged victim and other inhabitants have some very disturbing secrets indeed…

This is a very pleasant mystery situated on the gorgeous island of Amrum but perhaps the end was a bit too predictable.

Still,this is the first in the series,in English at least, and I will definitely try another one.

  1. It is indeed very promising,the setting (a small island )is gorgeous and the characters are well defined and believable.( The DI who is originally from Amrum has an adorable aunt on the island😊)
