DEATH OF A HERO

FIJI ISLANDS MYSTERIES:  How it all began

Meet young Joe Horseman. How much will he risk to save his dead hero’s honour?

Joe Horseman idolises rugby captain Seru, who plucked him from the crowd of hopeful freshers to place him in his Fiji university’s top team. So after Horseman finds Seru’s corpse in the changing shed he vows to help investigate. But the police refuse to pass him the ball. Even his friends and Coach send him to the sidelines. Yet when a cop suggests his idol may have feet of clay, Horseman defies the rules and charges ahead to save Seru’s honour.

Death of a Hero is the prequel to the Fiji Islands Mysteries series. Set in 1990s Suva, the young Horseman’s first case is not only a twisty whodunit that will have you reaching for your thinking cap, but a sensitive coming-of-age story that will touch your heart.

DEATH BY TRADITION

FIJI ISLANDS MYSTERIES 2

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.

FIJI ISLANDS MYSTERIES 1

An island paradise. A grisly murder. Can a detective put his rugby days behind him to tackle a killer case?

Josefa “Joe” Horseman holds out hope for a comeback. But after riding high in top class rugby, returning to the Fiji detective force with a bum knee and a promotion-hungry new partner wasn’t what he had in mind. So he knows he'll have to up his game when guests at a beachside resort discover a young maid’s corpse snagged on the reef.

 

Sorting through the victim’s jealous admirers, Horseman is under pressure to solve the case before the high-end vacation spot takes a major hit to its reputation… and its bottom line.  But just as he uncovers a lead on a sabotage suspect, another body rises to the surface.
