Description

Once again, Ben Kella has his hands full. A sergeant in the Solomon Islands Police Force, as well as an "aofia," a hereditary spiritual peacekeeper of the Lau people, he's called to investigate acts of sabotage that threaten the local operations of a powerful international logging company.
Meanwhile, Sister Conchita, a young nun with a flair for detection, has been forced to assume command of a run-down mission in the lush Western District of the Solomon Islands. When an American tourist is murdered in the mission church, she and Kella join forces to uncover the links between these goings-on and a sudden upsurge of interest in John F. Kennedy, who was once a wartime U.S. naval officer in the area but now, in 1960, thousands of miles away, about to become the thirty-fifth American President. Set in one of the most beautiful areas of the South Pacific, "One Blood "is the second entry in an exciting new series.

Review quote

Praise for "Devil-Devil"

"Truly fabulous.... This is a series, and a writer, to watch."--"Toronto Globe and Mail

""Will appeal to history buffs and those fond of exotic locales.... The Solomons, then a British protectorate, come fully alive in this absorbing adventure." --"Publishers Weekly"

"Kent, a prolific author of fiction and nonfiction, fills "Devil-Devil "with a sparkling plot (complete with an unexpected conclusion) and a rich history of the Solomons and their native people. But it's Kella and Conchita--and Kent's wit--that makes this unusual mystery work, and readers will eagerly await the next installment."--"Richmond Times-Dispatch"
