Detective Sergeant Apelu Soifua knows firsthand how cops work in the big city; he spent seven years on the beat with the San Francisco PD. There, the job was just a job. But back home on American Samoa, it's personal. On an island, there are no strangers. Secrets may be commonly known but they're never discussed, and solving crimes requires a certain...finesse. Here, Apelu walks the line between two cultures: Samoan versus American, native versus new, each with its own unique way of coping when things go wrong. And never is that more evident than when a seemingly random break-in at a white family's home turns out to be anything but random.

Following a tangled evidence trail that wends between cultures, Apelu must navigate dead bodies, hidden codes, and a string of lies before he can uncover the ugly truth buried at the heart of paradise.

    " If you enjoy more island info than actual story then you'll like this book. Obviously the author was familiar with his location and while that was interesting I would have preferred more of the actual story. "

    " I'd never heard Phil Gigante read before, and was truly impressed by his handling the range of characters, especially female voices. Plot suffered from a slow start, and somewhat confusing (at least in audio) finale. I'd definitely read more of the series. "

    " Enright's writing matches the flow of island life. The mystery was solid on its own but I particularly enjoyed the insight into Samoan culture. Well done and a worthy read. "
