PARADISO.

Paradiso lost seems to be the island of Bermuda (although at first you are mis-led to believe that it is less contaminated than other tropical tourist sanctuaries) and hopefully when found it will be a musical vehicle of that name for an ambitious girl, Angel da Sousa, who is most alluring to Jack Abbott. He's a middle-aged man with lots of new money -- in fact he has abandoned his family for Angel. Now they fly to the island where Snow, a black director, hopefully will use her if he ever gets to put the show on -- this becomes increasingly unlikely when it is revealed that he's involved not only in drugs but in local activist-terrorist politics. Prior has written other novels like this, most recently The Contract -- a commercial rendition of his own (BBC) television world in shiny Accucolor with a good deal of sex centerfolded all the way through.
