Murder at the Margin: A Henry Spearman Mystery

By Marshall Jevons | Go to book overview

CINNAMON BAY PLANTATION had long been considered by hotel connoisseurs to be one of the world's finest. It was situated on the site of an old sugar plantation, the ruins of which still stood on a hillside overlooking the property. The hotel's several hundred acres included carefully landscaped grounds and gardens as well as hiking trails through dense natural foliage overlooking spectacular views of St. John and the neighboring cays.

By the time the Spearmans had registered and been taken to their cottage, it was late afternoon, and so they had only a small taste of this beauty on the first day of their visit. But this was no great disappointment. It was enough of a delight to them to be able to change out of their flagging travel clothes, be refreshed by a cool shower, and realize that the journey was indeed safely completed. After unpacking their luggage the Spearmans dressed for dinner and left their cottage in the direction of the hotel's cocktail lounge.

The cocktail hour at Cinnamon Bay took place on a veranda overlooking the Sir Francis Drake Channel. At sunset the light reflected off the sails of passing sloops and ketches, and the breezes carried not only the salt air but also the aroma of gardenias and lime blossoms.
