Mourning the death of her police inspector husband, Margot Renard moves to a small seaside town in the south of France. But when the body of a small boy washes up on a beach, Margot is drawn into a dangerous world of drug smugglers and people trafficking, and forced to cross paths with two feuding gangsters.
Body On The Rocks by Rachel Green is a solid, well-paced mystery that had me invested early on. The world of drug smuggling and human trafficking is quite intense, and so this book definitely kept me on my toes.
I think Margot is the best developed character in the book. She has a deep backstop and a personality that you can root for. The rest of the characters were also well developed, but I think Margot stole the show.
Overall, Body On The Rocks kept me intrigued and surprised me often. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to crime mystery fans!
