Product Description

"One of the most inventive murders I have ever come across in years of reading crime fiction ... it will send a particularly icy chill up the spines of male readers." - Crime Fiction Lover

Dr. Kate Hampton, a respected psychiatrist, gathers with a group of strangers at her favorite travel spot in Jamaica.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the luxury resort is struggling due to a scathing review from travel critic, Matthew Kane. The owners have invited him back with hopes he will pen a more favorable review to restore their reputation.

Even though Kate is haunted by her own demons, she feels compelled to help. Can she uncover the motivation for the writer’s bitter review? In a battle of wits and psychological twists, terrible secrets will be revealed.

Stranger at Sunset is a slow-burning mystery/suspense that will keep you guessing to the end.

Wicked good read. This psychological thriller is a departure from Ms. Baylee's erotic romances (and I loved Spring Into Summer!) although there are still a few good erotic scenes to remind her fans she hasn't forgotten how to write a steamy sex scene, without going overboard the way a lot of writers do. (A good sex scene, like a sexy outfit, should still leave something to the imagination!) Psychologist Kate Hampton and a sundry assortment of wildly different people find themselves all at the same Jamaican resort, which is run by friends of Kate's and which is recuperating from both Hurricane Sandy and a bad review by a travel writer who's been invited back to give them a second chance.

I read mostly on public transportation, and this book made me miss my subway stop once! The characters are well-defined and different; you've got your redneck Southern couple, a narcissistic and deeply bitter travel writer, and the sort of misogynist but successful he-man who makes money teaching beta males how to score with chicks. (If you live in Toronto you're probably well-familiar with the infamous Dimitri the Love Doctor here who I suspect is the inspiration for the Adam character.)

The story develops well and encompasses several of the characters as Kate, working undercover for her friends, tries to get closer to Matthew the travel writer, in hopes of seeing or convincing him to write a better review. Matthew finds himself attracted to Kate, and repelled by Adam who represents everything he wants to be as a man. While reading of the rivalry between the two men, I was reminded of the Killer Virgin in southern California this spring who went gunning for beautiful women because he couldn't get laid.

Ms. Baylee does a fine job of delineating the psyches of her various characters.

I first encountered Eden Baylee in late 2012 when I read her collection of poems and flash fiction, entitled 'Hot Flash'. The literary quality of her writing and her wit encouraged me to dip into the erotic novellas in her 'Spring into Summer' collection. I have been a fan ever since.

So when I discovered she was writing a full-length mystery/thriller novel, I was intrigued.

'Stranger at Sunset' is a great piece of fiction writing with engaging characters, many of whom - in the fine mystery tradition - have embarrassing and potentially lethal secrets. The novel opens with a fine noir scene, which could have been straight out of Dashiel Hammett, and then Ms. Baylee's dark lens pans back to give us a view of the various people assembling for a holiday at Sunset Villa in Jamaica.

The backdrop of the Caribbean island in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy gives 'Stranger' an exotic feel, and the author treats the reader to the sights, sounds and smells of that wonderful island. The cast of this drama is well-drawn and diverse, displaying a variety of psychological types well-suited to a whodunnit. Humour, feisty encounters and a hint of romance make for a heady cocktail.

Some mysteries are so plot-driven, that the characters come over as two-dimensional, mere grist for the plot, but Ms. Baylee knows how to avoid this. The events grow organically out of human interactions, rivalries and grievances.

For me, Eden Baylee remains 'the cartographer of desire', although she demonstrates here her skills include mapping not only sexual attraction, but many of the other emotions that haunt us.

I look forward to the next of Dr. Kate Hampton's adventures. An excerpt of the second book in the series - 'A Fragile Truce' - is included at the end of the novel. Bring it on!

"Secrets eventually erode the soul."

Stranger at Sunset by Eden Baylee is a gripping suspense novel with more than meets the eye. Well-constructed, I was drawn in right away due to the beautifully poetic and prolific writing style. The story came to life and I was instantly drawn in. There is passion to the writing which had me reading at a feverish pace.

The drama and the clever twists and turns kept me guessing all the way through.

This psychological thriller was hard to put down as I read through the night. The lack of sleep was worth the quality pay out that this book offers. Well-written with a great plot line I found this unique mystery to be mesmerizing.

The author does a great job of setting the stage and feeding the reader an entertaining mystery that is an attention grabber. I was hooked from the very first page.

Stranger at Sunset it a fascinating escape which packs a punch, to say the least. Would most highly recommend.

Quote ~

The light in her room replaced the sun's blush, a poor substitute given a set of floor-to-ceiling jalousies bracketed his view. He waited to see what she would do next. His breathing deafened his ears as if he were wheezing through a mask; adrenaline pumped in his veins. She moved in front of the window facing him. With hands on her hips, legs spread apart, she stood full frontal and stared straight at him. He shrank back and jostled her image.

Could she see him?

With his naked eye, he peeked in her direction. Nothing had changed. Motionless, she continued to stand in position. Unable to resist, he gathered his wits and raised the binoculars once again, adjusted the focus ring on her legs-those legs that seemed to go on forever.
