Dark Wave ✧

One summer changes everything for Paloma Knightley. Returning to her family-owned resort on Songbird Island in the Whitsundays, she begins to receive anonymous letters accusing her brother-in-law of fraud. She calls her former lover, ‘legendary’ George Green, a retired surfer-turned-private investigator, to do some digging. Ultimately, they uncover secrets darker than they ever wanted to know, and confront their own past of regret, love, and desire. On Songbird Island, the truth is as dazzling and as mercurial as the ocean…

“With luscious prose and a sumptuous setting, Lana Guineay’s debut novella is a brilliant reworking of the classic crime novel.” – Seizure.
