Must DI Joe Horseman sacrifice his chance at love to catch a killer?

Only 5 more days… Horseman can’t wait for Melissa, his American girlfriend, to join him in Fiji. This time, he wants love to last. So, when a young activist is murdered at Tanoa in the remote highlands, Horseman sets a deadline to crack the case. Too close a deadline, for Tanoa is beyond radio reach. What’s more, the villagers are steeped in the old ways and cannot be hurried. To get anywhere, Horseman and his partner DS Susie Singh must navigate both the back roads and the minefield of Fijian custom with care.

As Horseman counts the hours to Melissa’s touch down, he has no idea of the dangers lurking in the mountain mist.
