Book Description

1960, and Sister Conchita, the young nun with a flair for detection, has been forced to leave her beloved Malaita and assume reluctant command of a run-down mission in the lush, primitive Western District of the Solomon Islands.The group of three elderly sisters currently there are rumoured to have 'gone native' and Conchita tries to grapple with these eccentric, tough-mind insurgents and the secrets they are keeping when an American tourist is murdered in their mission church but perplexingly, the colonial authorities want nothing to do with this bizarre crime.



Help is at hand for Sister Conchita in the shape of her friend Sergeant Ben Kella, the local police officer but also the aofia, the traditional law-bringer of the islands. Together, the idealistic young nun and practical witch doctor set out to solve the mystery. In the process they discover links to a local independence organisation, a powerful international logging company, and, most puzzling of all, to John F. Kennedy, a former wartime US naval officer in the area but now, thousands of miles away, about to become the 35th president of the USA.



Praise for Devil-Devil:



The mystery takes a back seat to [Kent's] knowledge of the exotic location and the combustible chemistry of his protaganists (the oddest couple since The African Queen), which add immensely to his story's charm. Kirkus Review

4.0 out of 5 stars A great cozy 9 July 2013
By Elaine Tomasso TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novel is set in the early 60s on the Solomon Islands and it harks back to forgotten innocence. Ben Kella, native policeman and local wiseman, is sent to the western isles to sort out vandalism at a logging camp. In the meantime Sister Conchita is puzzled at the lack of official interest in the death of a tourist at her mission open day. Needless to say the two meet up and bring their different strengths to the investigation. This is a well written enjoyable novel. The characters are well drawn, the local details seem realistic and the plot suits the style of the book - rather meandering and full of 60s politics. Worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars one blood 10 Dec. 2012

The setting of the Solomon Islands was new to me, enjoyed the mix of modern day policing and traditional custom. A good bit of escapism at the end of a stressful day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent entertainment. 27 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read the first two in this series and have just brought the third. I suspect I will go onto read them all, which just says how good I think they are. They are well plotted, well written, have great characters, and as icing on the cake - an exotic location. Don't be put off by the low kindle price, these books are worth a lot more. I'm not complaining mind you, but I can't help feel they are priced way to low.
