This week, beach life isn't always chill—sometimes it's downright murderous. Take a visual tour through John Keyse-Walker's Sun, Sand, Murder!

As a Special Constable, Teddy Creque is the only police presence on the remote, sun-drenched island of Anegada, nestled in the heart of the British Virgin Islands.

In all his years on the job, Teddy has never considered the possibility that he might have to address an actual crime on his peaceful island.

That is, until he receives a hysterical call about a dead man on the beach.

Indeed, Teddy is shocked to discover Paul Kelliher, a biologist who traveled to the island every winter for research, lying dead on the sands of the island’s most remote beach, killed by a single shot to the head.

And when the BVI’s “real police” task Teddy with informing Kelliher’s nearest kin of his death, Teddy makes an even more surprising discovery: there’s no record that Paul Kelliher ever existed.

Suddenly Teddy’s routine life is thrown into tumult as he tries to track a killer against his boss’s wishes.

While balancing his complicated family life.

Three other jobs.

And, the colorful characters populating the island around him.
