The notion of a murder set at an exotic holiday resort also smacked pleasingly of Agatha Christie's "A Caribbean Mystery". However, Allsopp's is very much a 21st century story examining the many modern dichotomies in Fiji; native customs vs foreign influences, international environmental pressures vs financial imperatives for locals, modern communications technology vs the grapevine, man-made luxuries vs natural beauties, long-haul travel vs local transport systems.
The location and the issues are vividly and fairly described, without idealising or sentimentalising Fiji. We're shown as much of its impoverished and diesel-clogged cities as the idyllic beach resorts beloved of travel guides.
Against this thought-provoking backdrop and interwoven with these themes comes a gripping murder mystery investigation led by an interesting local detective who has also achieved national and international fame as a rugby star. His support team includes an appealing and plucky Indian sidekick Susina (Susie) Singh. In time-honoured Sherlock Holmes tradition, he befriends a street urchin shoeshine boys, and has a street team that includes his mother, a retired nurse. I really warmed to these characters, and the wide cast of staff, medics and tourists are all effectively portrayed.
I hope this is the start of a series, as I for one would very much like to read sequels.
I am not sure all the Fijian Language was necessary, it seems to detract from the pace of the narrative.
