I don't know how they solve crimes in Australia, but these goof balls don't secure the murder scene, and the next day find a suspect sitting in it. So it's contaminated, there's no chain of custody for any evidence, and a first year law student would get any evidence thrown out.
However, these murderers are more forgiving, and make it easy for them.
If you have more than three cats, this is for you.
Interviews led them to believe not all were telling the truth – but who knew more than they were letting on? Would the show go on or could the contestants go home? Cooper and Quinn were so far out of their comfort zones they felt the battle was uphill all the way…
Dark Paradise is #4.5 in the Cooper & Quinn series by Aussie author Catherine Lee, and although of novella length, it was great to catch up with the two detectives again. I thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining read and am looking forward to the next in the series – Dark Streets – hopefully soon. Highly recommended – but do read the series in order 😊
Dark Paradise by Catherine Lee is a novella that follows their investigation as they painstakingly piece together clues and eliminate suspects, one-by-one, until they focus on the one most likely. The problem; they have no proof, and the clock is ticking.
While there is some focus on police procedure, the main focus in this entertaining little tale is the mental processes the two heroes follow as they zero in on the main suspect.

I describe it as 'semi-cosy' because the violence and murder happens off screen and this is paced more as a character-driven crime story than an out and out thriller, and it's none the worse for that.
The story opens when one of the stars of a Big Brother style 'reality' TV show (a queen bi*ch) is found dead in her bedroom. Sydney cops Cooper and Quinn fly out to the island and have to investigate under the most to primitive of conditions. I mean, their mobile phones don't work for goodness sakes! It doesn't take long for our heroes to learn that the woman was murdered, and the 'closed room mystery' opens up to include every resident on the island.
Do Cooper and Quinn find the murderer? Read onto find out.
Well written and enjoyable.
Regardless, I did enjoy the story.
