Enright’s new mystery novel on pre-order at Amazon
Former American Samoa resident John Enright draws from his more than 25 years in the South Pacific to frame the setting and characters for his new mystery novel, 'Pago Pago Tango'.
Reviewer Thomas Gaughan describes the lead character, Detective Sergeant Apelu Soifua, as facing many obstacles, not least the fact that the police force is a “palangi invention.”
“The insights into Samoan society, culture, and history at first seem like interesting digressions, but they ultimately become integral to understanding Apelu’s approach to the case,” writes Gaughan.
