Book Description

6 Jun 2013 Kella & Conchita Mystery 3
Sister Conchita, the young nun with a flair for detection, is immersed in another Solomon Islands investigation when an islander who claims to be a reincarnation of Noah is drowned outside his ark. To make matters worse, Conchita suspects that the murderer might be a Japanese soldier, still prowling the jungle fifteen years after the end of World War II. Once again she enlists the aid of her friend Sergeant Ben Kella of the Solomon Islands Police Force. Together they try and track down the malevolent Killman, a professional assassin who is introducing a reign of terror to the beautiful but dangerous island of Malaita that they both love so much. This time their perilous quest takes them as far as the wild Polynesian island of Tikopia, the almost legendary tiny island of the four kingdoms.

Book Description

The third murder mystery set on the exotic Solomon Islands featuring Sergeant Kella and Sister Conchita.

From the Back Cover

An act of God . . . or the act of an assassin? Sister Conchita, the young nun with a flair for detection, is immersed in another Solomon Islands investigation when an islander who claims to be a reincarnation of Noah is drowned outside his ark.To make matters worse, Conchita suspects that the murderer might be a Japanese soldier, still prowling the jungle fifteen years after the end of World War II. Once again she enlists the aid of her friend Sergeant Ben Kella of the Solomon Islands Police Force. Together, Ben and Sister Conchita try and track down the malevolent Killman, a professional assassin who is introducing a reign of terror to the beautiful but dangerous island of Malaita that they both love so much. This time their perilous quest takes them as far as the wild Polynesian island of Tikopia, the almost legendary tiny island of the four kingdoms. 'An intriguing mystery tied up in the superb setting of the Solomon Islands of the 1960's.' The Bookbag 'The combustible chemistry of the two characters (the oddest couple since The African Queen) add immensely to this story's charm.' Kirkus

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit different 7 July 2013
Format:Paperback
Although I found the ending a bit of an anti-climax, overall I so enjoy reading the Kella & Conchita mysteries. This third book, though slightly weaker in main plot than the previous two, is no exception.

Lovely descriptive writing adds to the author's knowledge of the solomons and the way he able to bring the islands into life combined with the sub-plots ( how Kella irreverently deals with the expatriate authorities of the island whilst combining his police role with dealing with custom disputes) makes for a glorious book.

Can't wait for number 4..,.

4.0 out of 5 stars A more innocent time 29 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely, innocent tale set in the Solomon Islands in the early 60s. Sergeant Ben Kella is a well educated native policeman but also an aofia, a local priest/lawman and sometimes the 2 roles don't mesh but he does his best, ably assisted by Sister Conchita, a locally based Boston nun. In Killman Ben is asked by the local chiefs to find a Killman (hitman to us) who has killed 3 members of a new sect and by a Japanese functionary to find a suspected Japanese soldier still loose in the bush after the war. Could they be the same person? Read the book and find out! This seems to me to be a well researched book, full of local colour and beliefs with engaging protagonists and a slow languorous pace, which rather reflects the setting. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it a pleasant way to pass a few hours.
