I live with Ruth in Napier, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. Napier is located on the eastern coast of the North Island. I have lived here since May 2015. NAPIER is a popular place for tourists because of its unique 1930's Art Deco architecture. Most of the city had to be rebuilt after the earthquake of 1931 which destroyed just about all the city buildings. It also has a beautiful Marine Parade. The temperatures in summer are often 30 -33 degrees.
When a Ryxin woman's body is found washed up on a beach, a prison inmate believes her friend has been murdered. She asks PI Curtis McCoy and his assistant Janux, to investigate. When they interview several ex-prisoners a complex web of intrigue unfolds. But who is the killer? And what is the motive? A psychological thriller set amidst the harsh discrimination in which Ryxins live. But is this what drives someone to kill? Or are there other more far reaching factors involved?
