I grew up in suburban Sydney, on the edge of the South Pacific Ocean. Armed with an Arts degree and eager for exotic adventure, I signed on to teach in Papua New Guinea (PNG) for two years. The Papuan children in my first primary class won my heart and that fabulous land became an absorbing interest.
A notorious convict is freed. The public wants him dead.
Everyone in Fiji hates Dev Reddy, in prison for the horrific abuse of his own son. When he is released after serving half his term, the Fiji media whip up a public outcry in Suva. As protest escalates to riot, DI Joe Horseman fears Reddy's parole may prove to be a death sentence.
But Horseman defies the court of public opinion. He must even battle his new boss to protect Reddy like any other citizen under threat. Together with DS Susie Singh, he pursues blind justice through the streets of Suva and the rural backblocks. Can he unearth a killer the public applauds?
Death Sentence is the fourth novel in B.M. Allsopp's Fiji Islands Mysteries series. If you enjoy digging deep to expose the truth, this bizarre crime story is for you.
