It becomes clear pretty quickly that there's something rotten on the island of Barbados, as Clint's repugnant family makes very clear when they come to allegedly pay their condolences and end up interrogating Cindy (Clint's widow, remember) instead. Cindy's sister Ann is doing her best to help but comes across as kind of a bossy boots (I feel like if I were Cindy, every person that tried to tell me what I need or what would be best for me would just start getting punched in the face.) Everyone wants to help but you can practically hear Cindy screaming inside to just get people to back off.
Anyway, Cindy has a lot of reasons for her Spidey senses to be tingling, although no one else seems to feel the same. Just when Cindy finally caves and begins to attempt to put her life back together for the sake of other people who love her, it becomes alarmingly clear that her feeling that Clint's death wasn't an accident was right on the money. Now she has to decide whether it would be better to just remember Clint in her heart forever and ride quietly into the sunset, or to try to uncover the truth, however ugly it may be.
Because this is a relatively short story it has to get down to business fairly quickly, and there isn't a lot of time or space to devote to side stories or ancillary characters. The plot is lean and streamlined, and we arrive at point B from point A fairly quickly. We as readers can piece together the game that's afoot pretty quickly; watching Cindy figure it out and overcome the obstacles that have been put in her way is a different experience. The ending, too, and the resolution of the story, require you to buy into the story as a reader. Would people necessarily behave that way in real life? Probably not, but that's the great thing about fiction. The author has created an environment where everything comes out in the wash and the stage is set for book 2, and that's okay by me.
