Death in the Andamans is a masterpiece of mystery and romance from one of our most beloved authors. When a violent storm lashes the tiny Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal, Copper Randal barely manages a safe return to Government House. She does get back in one piece with her hostess, Valerie Masson, Val's fiance, and handsome naval officer Nick Tarrent, but one of the islanders is unaccounted for when the boats return to harbor. Cut off from the mainland and confined to the shadowy, haunted guest quarters, Copper and the other visitors conclude that one of their number is a murderer. The killer must be found before the storm destroys all trace of any possible clues. In Death in the Andamans M.M. Kaye has created the perfect blend of exotic setting and expertly crafted whodunit that mark her as one of our greatest literary talents.

This is my favorite of all MM Kaye's wonderful mysteries. Her description of the Andaman Islands (off the coast of Thailand and part of India) is enough reason to read the book. It takes place before WW2. She actually stayed in the Government house she describes in the book, which was more or less haunted. There's a floor plan too. It's a whodunit with adventure, suspense and romance - it's all here.
