detective mystery


Fallen former New Zealand detective constable Gideon Cooper has trouble keeping his mouth shut, his ass sober, and his pants zipped. The last man he needs as a partner is by-the-book Maori detective John Winks. After all, Winks might discover Cooper's secret—his own Maori heritage, one he's kept hidden all his life. What Cooper needs most is another chance. So when a body is found in the New Zealand swamp and the Department calls him in on the case, he agrees.


Murder, deception and politics are about to keep Cooper and Winks knee-deep in muck. The pukeko have found a way to survive in the bogs. Can this partnership do the same?
