This is book#1 of the Fiji Islands Mysteries and Joe Horseman is now a detective that has returned home only to find out that the 'family' festivities will have to wait because of a murder on Paradise Island. This character has already wound his way into my 'mystery solver' persona. I enjoy reading about his family, his love of the islands, his love of the community and the youth. The mystery was well done; however, I was able to 'guess' the culprit, but not really the reason behind it. Liked the way Allsopp tidied up at the end. Will definitely read more of these mysteries. Thanks.
The Fiji Islands are on my vacation wishlist but, in lieu of an actual visit, I’ll take this mystery series.
A great part of the enjoyment for me was the partial cultural immersion as well as getting into the minds and hearts of the characters. The author is Australian but has lived in the South Pacific islands for 14 years, including four in Fiji where she worked at the University of the South Pacific in Suva. I’d be interested in a local reviewer’s perspective in this regard.
I’ve already bought book 2 because I really want to know where the personal stories go!
When a renowned Fijian rugby star and police officer returns home after stints overseas he is immediately back on the job as a young staff member from a local tourist resort is found drowned. A puzzling series of events follow and deepen the mystery of the death further.. Who is responsible? Can the police solve this peculiar case with so many different possibilities and suspects. A further death threatens and overshadows the case .
I don't know why, but this book was hard to get through. I loved the tropical setting, I liked the different characters, & the plot was good. Still it was not an easy book for me, even though I was determined to finish it.
Following newly recovered, and promoted, DI Joe Horseman as he tries to solve a set of complicated murders while working around his star status as a national rugby hero lends a new perspective to the story. I grew to quite like Joe by the end of this book, and look forward to spending more time with him and his team.
