What you need to know before your trail

Maori cop Tito Ihaka is a stubborn investigator with an uncanny instinct for the truth. He  might not follow all of the police rules and ways of doing things but now he’s been called back to follow up a strange twist in the unsolved case that got him into trouble in the first place. Ihaka finds himself hunting a shadowy hitman and whilst his enemies want him off the case, the bodies are piling up.

Soon he becomes involved with an enigmatic female suspect who could hold the key to everything.

Travel Guide

Maori cop Tito Ihaka is one cop of a kind. Described as “the brown Sherlock Holmes” he’s a unique character. He’s “unkempt, overweight, and unorthodox” and that’s just a few of the words used to describe him.

Brought back into the fold after a case which has haunted him, his former boss is now Auckland District Commander. Back to Auckland is not going to be easy however.

The author is British but has lived in New Zealand for most of his life. To embed you even more into the setting, the use of the local vernacular and regional words will have you speaking with an accent by the time you’ve finished.
