Turmoil in Paradise

Turmoil in Paradise: Trouble Shooter or Hitman is the story of Engineer Sam Gawler, who is the typical tall, dark, and handsome guy. Ladies adore him, and men despise him while secretly wishing they were him, he is also a trouble shooter, or at least that is what one of the executives at a giant mining corporation he is working for calls him.

He is not seen as an employee by the corporation, but a gun for hire. Gawler is the person the corporation calls when they need to get out of a sticky situation without getting their hands dirty. Gawler works anonymously as he likes his privacy, and the corporation prefers it that way. His latest mission takes him to Buckleboo Creek in North Queensland. The moment Gawler walks into this tropical paradise, he is faced with threats and enemies all around. It is up to him to rise to the challenge and get the job done.

Author Mark Edmonds has masterfully created a character that will pique readers’ interest from the very first page. The idea of a hitman is something that isn’t foreign to many readers since it is a topic widely covered mostly in box office hits these days; however, this book has the perfect amount of appeal to capture readers from the opening chapter. This action-packed book gets quite graphic and violent, but Edmonds masterfully weaves in scenes of humor which makes it less unsettling for readers. In addition to that, readers will find that the book contains a lot of musical references, which I, as a reader, found refreshing and very entertaining. I really enjoyed the character of Gawler and would have loved to know more about him as a person because what we do learn about him is interesting.

Readers will find Gawler’s journey engaging as they are taken on this thrilling ride alongside him. In addition, Edmonds’ work is made up of short chapters, making it perfect both for readers who binge and for readers who read one chapter at a time. 

Turmoil in Paradise: Trouble Shooter or Hitman is an action-filled thriller with drama that builds continuously throughout the book to make for a very suspenseful story that readers will love to follow as the scandals unfold.
