The Beach Club in the Jungle

Ramon Stoppelenburg’s blistering new novel features four characters going for a therapeutic retreat at an exclusive resort on a paradise island.

Former newspaper reporter Morris is scared to live, expat teacher Jess doesn’t trust men anymore, extreme-made-over Claire is addicted to her health and big shot Spencer is a doctor with a drinking problem.

Once at the infinity pool of a beach club in the jungle they find out what this therapy is demanding from them all.

Brilliantly written, with his signature humor, fascinating authenticity from his research, and heart-pounding pace, Ramon Stoppelenburg debut is a total recommendation.
