Private detectives Matt Singer and Jamal Wade’s plan to sell real estate as a side business explodes into murder when their client is brutally slain in a house they’ve listed for sale.
In their search to find the real killer, Matt and Jamal are trapped in a Chinese puzzle box of cover-ups and corruption that goes to the very top of the southern California beach town known as Paradise.

Featured Reviews

Author Jack Polo has created an intriguing team of private investigators in Death in Paraiso. Jamal Wade and Matt Singer are comfortable with each other, and the reader soon becomes comfortable with them as they uncover deep pockets of corruption in the beautiful coast town of Paraiso. Is the big crook the mayor? The police chief? A long-missing Mexican contractor? Wade and Singer follow all leads, even some you would never have guessed. I enjoyed the novel and read it straight through. Yes, I am ready for more! Thanks, NetGalley, and Black Rose, for the ARC.

Death in Paraiso is about detectives Matt and Jamal trying to sell real estate as a side business. Of course things go terribly wrong when one of their clients is found murdered in their property. Engrossing and entertaining. Very well written. Highly recommend this novel for anyone wanting to read a novel that grabs you from the beginning and does not let go until the very end.
