Nina Barker is a neurotic young New York lawyer whose life is coming apart. After suffering a lost job and a bad breakup, she flees the increasingly painful world she knows in favor of what she imagines - quite wrongly, it turns out - will be a simpler life on the remote island of Miramar. Populated with corrupt politicians, quirky and frequently intoxicated expats, ghosts, strippers, and a guy who may or may not be working for the CIA, Nina soon discovers her tropical escape isn't exactly paradise - it's also not boring. Sometimes heartbreaking, often hilarious, Tropical Depression explores what happens when a person finds the change, adventure, and CIA agents she wasn't looking for.

The politicians that trade places every two years or so..a true paradise that many Americans end up just staying there in paradise and a few who make it home and miss it but can't go back. Very nice story and so true in its own way.
Book would be enjoyed most by someone familiar with Micronesia or other related areas.
For what it is worth found people on the island to be kind and helpful, very good food and stayed at an excellent resort. Has all the bumps and challenges of a remote, tropical island but it shines on. Hurrah for "Miramar"!
