"Black Marina, which is set on an 'Island Paradise' in the Caribbean, tells a story of great force and poignancy, partly inspired by the events surrounding the invasion of Grenada in 1983.
Holly Baker, an English woman, came to St James in her carefree days of bar-hopping in the sixties.  Somehow she never managed to get away.  With fluctuating loyalties, she is caught up in the closing stages of a drama that is both personal and political - and which embodies the conflicts inherent in this small, dangerously placed society.  As the island and its visitors prepare for Christmas, events that were seeded at the time of Holly's first coming to St James finally blow up into a violent and chilling debacle."
