Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Lala must deal with a chain of events that have terrible consequences when her petty criminal husband is interrupted in his attempt to rob one of the mansions in their "paradise" home of Baxter Beach, Barbados.
In Baxter's Beach, Barbados, Lala's grandmother Wilma tells her a cautionary tale of the one-armed sister, and what happens to girls who disobey their mothers and go into the Baxter's Tunnels. Now Lala lives on the beach with her husband, Adan, a petty criminal with endless charisma whose thwarted burglary of one of the beach mansions sets off a chain of events with terrible consequences. -- adapted from jacket
