It's not easy being Ben Kella. As a sergeant in the Solomon Islands Police Force, as well as an aofia, a hereditary spiritual peacekeeper of the Lau people, he is viewed with distrust by both the indigenous islanders and the British colonial authorities. In
the past few days he has been cursed by a magic man, stumbled across evidence of a cargo cult uprising, and failed to find an American anthropologist who had been scouring the mountains for a priceless pornographic icon. Then, at a mission station, Kella discovers an independent and rebellious young American nun, Sister Conchita, secretly trying to bury a skeleton. The unlikely pair of Kella and Conchita are forced to team up to solve a series of murders that tie into all these other strange goings-on. Set in the 60's in one of the most beautiful and dangerous areas of the South Pacific, Devil-Devil launches an exciting new series.

Overall I enjoyed Devil-Devil for it complicated plot, it’s unusual setting and interesting history. The characters are realistic and likeable, so I can definitely see myself continuing on with this series.

Ai yi yi! I would comfortably give this book 14,000 stars! I cannot express how much I enjoyed it.
I really like the style of writing: not too flowery, just enough info to allow my imagination room to fill in the details for myself, but I was given enough info to see what I needed to.
Wow! 10 thumbs up!
