Botanist Theo Bloomer is browbeaten by his sister into chaperoning his college-age niece and her friends on a posh spring-break vacation in Jamaica. Their personal pool-boy (!)is murdered, but why? Then one of the coeds is kidnapped. How will Uncle Theo cope? The real mystery is why would he want to, when almost all of the college kids are spoiled, self-centered brats.

The writing is fine, but Theo Bloomer was not a strong enough personality to overcome the rest of the annoying characters in this mystery. ( )
