The retired British residents of the Spanish resort of Estrella de Mar seem to belong to an idyllic community, enjoying constant sporting and cultural activity - based around the Club Nautico. The image is shattered when five people die in a housefire and the club manager is arrested for murder.
The setting for Cocaine Nights is the Costa del Sol and the stylish resort of Estrella de Mar. Into the queasy beauty of this artificial environment steps Charles Prentice, a travel writer from London who has come to visit his brother Frank, manager of the resort's Club Nautico.Frank is in jail, having confessed to setting an explosive fire that has taken five lives. Certain that the confession was coerced, Charles launches his own investigation. As he allows himself to be drawn further into Estrella de Mar's dark underworld, this explosive novel accelerates toward a disturbing climax.
