Product Description

Product Description

Most of us would love to work in the glamorous world of TV advertising on location in the Caribbean.

Kate Robinson has landed just such a dream assignment. She’s 22, British and cheerfully single. Tall, gawky and not the most fashionable gal, Kate is nevertheless full of confidence, with impressive powers of organisation and compulsive attention to detail that make her a briskly efficient (if rather bossy) Production Assistant to the film shoot.

On the tiny West Indian island of St. Saviour’s, the task for Kate and her crew is to produce a shampoo advert.

What can go wrong on board a giant luxury catamaran en route to the perfect film location, the uninhabited atoll known as the Tobago Cays?

Plenty, starting with the star of the commercial, Trinidadian model Jasmine, dusky, gorgeous and full of attitude, who takes an instant dislike to Kate and sabotages her at every turn. Then a shocking voodoo artefact appears in Kate’s cabin. There’s something really strange about St. Saviour’s too, where expat Brits have taken over the local church and exert a powerful hold over the simple local people.

To top it all, a storm is brewing in the Atlantic, threatening to spiral into a killer hurricane heading their way.

Mayhem, witch-doctoring, conspiracy and finally gruesome murder overtake Kate and her hapless film crew. Kate’s only ally against the dark forces assailing them is Theo, the cheerful gap-toothed Rastafarian crewman on the yacht.

The action is continuous and plays out over 36 hours which see Kate and Theo battling for their sanity and their lives as the story builds to a pulse-pounding climax that will leave you gasping.

More About the Author

Timothy Frost lives near the sea in North Norfolk. He began writing as a student, but a career in advertising intervened, and it was many years before he accomplished his lifelong ambition of writing a full-length novel.

Tim is a keen yachtsman, and sailed the Atlantic from the UK to St Lucia with his wife. His experiences on and around the ocean in the Caribbean provided much of the inspiration and background for his thrillers.

Tim's first novel of contemporary nautical skulduggery, 'Final Passage', was released in 2009, followed by 'The Abigail Affair' (a UK Kindle Top Ten bestseller) in 2010 and 'The Shoot' in 2011. His latest thriller, this time set on land, is 'Play the Piper'.

Timothy Frost is a pen name of Mark Hankin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping stuff 9 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Well what an amazing story! The author's yachting experiences around the Caribbean inspire the background for this story, which starts with Kate and a small team who intend to shoot a T.V. commercial in the Caribbean. Things go wrong pretty quickly and Kate's nightmare begins. And it is a nightmare! As if several murders are not bad enough the strange religious beliefs of the local people are exploited by villains and woven horribly into the plot. This story is not for the faint hearted and is maybe a bit exaggerated in places but I found it to be gripping stuff. I wonder what the author will write next he has already set the bar pretty high!

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Wicker Man influence 3 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A light, easy read thriller, but a bit hackneyed. I felt it was heavily influenced by the 'Wicker Man' but not so dramatic. The explanation at the end was a bit predictable. The sailing scenes were good though, as was the description of the hurricane (not something I would like to experience!). Kate was good, a tough, but vulnerable main character.

Will give Tim's other books a go.
