Island Madness by Tim Binding

It is 1943, and the German Army has been defeated at Stalingrad. The Russians have taken 91,000 prisoners; 145,000 German soldiers have been killed. The tide is beginning to turn.

But on Guernsey and the rest of the Channel Islands, the only British territory to have been occupied by German troops, such a reversal is unimaginable. Here, in idyllic surroundings, the reality of war seems a lifetime away. While resentment runs high, life goes on, parties are held, love affairs blossom and the Guernsey Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Players can still stage productions of Private Lives, Babes in the Wood and Peter Pan--albeit with suspiciously jackbooted pirates.

But when a young local woman is found murdered, both the islanders and the occupiers are forced to acknowledge that this most civilized of wars conceals a struggle that is darker and more bitter than anyone cares to recognize.
