Lid Off The Modern Bahamas
LONG HOT SUMMER offers a highly controversial insight into the modern Bahamas through the eyes of the man who edited the nation’s premier daily newspaper, The Tribune, for more than ten years.
Described by acclaimed author Jonathan Mantle as ‘jaw droppingly direct’ and ‘hideously funny’, this book lifts the lid off the Bahamas and its squalidly corrupt legal and political system.
Its prime target is the late Sir Lynden Pindling, so-called ‘father of the nation’, whose 25 years in power transformed an island paradise into a crime-ridden hell-hole infected by cocaine trafficking and violence. Mantle said: ‘This book offers the most withering appraisal I’ve ever read of a modern political leader.’
