Isla Paradisa. A recluse tropical island somewhere in the South Pacific. The only settlement on the island is the Paradisa Holiday Romance Resort, founded by a man known simply as Mr. Crusoe. It is a single vacationer’s dream, a paradise cut off from the rest of the world, where you can concentrate on experiencing the thrills of a true holiday romance.
The only connection to the rest of the world is a ferry that arrives every two weeks to switch out the visitors to new love-seekers. The guests stay at luxurious private bungalows scattered along the beach.
The guests are taken care of by a highly talented staff hand-picked by Mr. Crusoe himself. The head of the staff and the hostess of the island is the lovely Sunday, Mr. Crusoe's mistress. The staff hold their base at the Magnolia Lodge that also includes a restaurant and a pool area for the guests.
Mr. Crusoe himself is an elusive man, rarely seen by the visitors. He prefers the privacy of his rooftop office that has a view over the entire island. His office holds a collection of invaluable ancient artefacts from all around the world.
The question that nobody dares to ask is how Mr. Crusoe came to possess such treasures. That is a secret only Mr. Crusoe knows, since he is careful not to let any nosey reporters set even a foot on Isla Paradisa. His past and true identity is a complete mystery.
But in a twist of fate, that mystery is unraveled in the most horrible of ways.
A fresh batch of vacationers had just arrived on Isla Paradisa. They spent their first day getting accomodated and relaxing each in their own way. Some basked in the sun, some went for a swim, some went surfing, some exercised, and some enjoyed a free drink or two. Or twenty.
It was an uneventful day, and everybody went to bed early to recover from the long trip. At the dead of the night, a chilling breeze swept across the island, and people tossed and turned in their beds. It was an omen of what was yet to come.
Mr. Crusoe woke up the following day only to find the other side of the bed empty and his lover Sunday gone. He figured she had just went down to make some coffee for them. He then went over to the great window to gaze at the island that had been his home for the past ten years.
And that is when the dream turned into a nightmare.
The staff gathered to the pool of the Magnolia Lodge where Mr. Crusoe wept in front of the corpse of his lover, Sunday. She had been skewered into a palm tree with a spear. There was a note hanging from the body.
Soon the guests arrived to the Magnolia Lodge for a breakfast, and they became witnesses of the tragedy as well. Fear and panic struck the crowd as they discussed the horrendous murder. Had anybody seen anything? Was there somebody else on this island? Or was the killer hiding among them?
Mr. Crusoe's despair had turned into anger. He demanded everyone's attention and waved the note left on his lover's corpse in front of them.
"To the one calling himself Mr. Crusoe.
My men will kill a person every night until you return what you stole.
- An Old Friend"
The confused and panicked crowd were left on the yard to go over the situation.
