An Englishman, attending a conference on Buddhism and animal rights, is shot dead on a beach near Matara, Sri Lanka. When his sister, Sally, arrives to identify him, she learns that he may not have been the intended victim. But she also discovers disturbing information about her brother’s past and finds out that her own life is in danger.
The story takes the reader from Colombo to Galle, Weligama and Tissamaharama, where Sally’s former lover now lives. At once a mystery and a thriller, 'A Shot on the Beach' is full of unexpected twists that will engage and intrigue its readers.
