El faro (The Lighthouse)by P. D. James
Combe Island, once a strategic base for slave-trading pirates, now serves as an inconspicuous refuge for some of the most influential people in the world: a starkly beautiful place where scientists, politicians, diplomats, and other distinguished guests can relax in privacy and total security. But when one of the world's greatest novelists is found hanging from the lighthouse, Dalgliesh is called to the island to get to the bottom of the heinous murder.
