'So, when a young activist is murdered at Tanoa in the remote highlands, Horseman sets a deadline to crack the case. Too close a deadline, for Tanoa is beyond reach of even the police radio.

To get anywhere, Horseman and his partner DS Susie Singh must navigate both the back roads and the niceties of Fijian custom with care.
