Voodoo or Vodou or is it Vodu? A syncretic religion which combines various thought and belief systems with different schools of thought on practice. It has spirits and gods and blood sacrifices – maybe or maybe not.
This novel is set on the Big island of Hawaii with a veritable TV cast of characters – a naive and vulnerable teenager; a family split with a new boyfriend who was the father’s cop partner; a ‘mad’ villain looking to cleanse himself through a religious sacrifice; some billionaires who double as private investigators; and a gut instinct – which helps find the real path to the villain.
It has it all. And would make a great TV series if you could believe in the storyline.
To me, there was just too much and very reminiscent of the TV series with Jennifer and Jonathan Hart. [See more at: http://coffeetimeromance.com/CoffeeThoughts/13-private-detective-couples-in-books-and-film/#sthash.XqKdNetB.dpuf] or Macmillan and Wife.
