I don t know if this is the final book about Apelu and his kin but if it Is It Will Be A it will be a wat to nd the series A tale about morality and mortality the story flows and draws the reader in Almost perfect This is the fourth book about Detective Apelu Soifua a police detective in American Samoa Three years ago I read the first book in the series Pago Pago Tango because I had spent three weeks in Samoa on a business trip many years ago There are really two Samoas American Samoa is an American territory Samoa or the two Samoas American Samoa is an American territory Samoa or the State of Samoa was formerly known as Western Samoa They are only 40 miles apart Surprisingly Pago Pago has a somewhat different feel from Apia in independent Samoa It is fun to have ven a small familiarity with the xotic setting of a mystery novelWhile I liked the first book in the series it was not fascinating ЯED enough to make me look for the rest of the series When this one came up for review it seemed a good time to see how the series had matured The book has the same general feel as the first one but the storytelling has improved I should also note that you need not read the preceding books in the se I received an ARC from the Publisher and NetGalley inxchange for my honest reviewTo be honest this is the first book I have read by this author The author was unknown to me at the time I reuested and received an ARC If I had known Blood Jungle Ballet is part of a series I would have delayed reading this title until after I had read other books from series The reason I say this is solely because of this author s writing style is so different from what I am use to John Enright seems to have a very slow somewhat lazy way of telling a story I had a *hard time staying interested because the story flow was so slow and found my attention wanderingBlood Jungle Ballet *time staying interested because the story flow was so slow and found my attention wanderingBlood Jungle Ballet the story of a man s struggle to find his identity in a changing landscape as he searches for a killer The plot and storytelling remhinds of the feeling I have when I sit on a grassy knoll on a hot summer day watching the slow moving waters What kept me interested in continuing to read Blood Jungle Ballet are the interesting characters the author introduced into the storyIn finishing I felt that there was a lack of a true plot and follow through in solving the mystery seemed the discovery of the culprit was completely accidental The writer has a wonderful way of creating and describing characters and Samoa which is what I found most njoyable with Blood Jungle Ballet This was the first book in this series that I have read To be honest I didn t realise it was a series until I wrote this review and saw how has it listed It certainly reads like a stand alone novel and I don t remember any callbacks or allusions to previous storylines A very slow paced Heart of Darkness A man s struggle to find his identity in a changing landscape A search for a killer All these plot lements form together seamlessly Albeit somewhat lazily There is no uickened pace no heightened heart rate this is a molasses slow plodding tale that leads to a likely conclusion Along the way there are an interesting cast of characters which in my opinion makes the story readable The mystery itself seems an afterthought there is no drive to really discover the murderer In fact the truth is uncovered only through vendettas A disuieting string of murders terrorizes the remote lush island of Samoa Detective Sergeant Apelu Soifua has seen a lot in his time with the police force but The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs even he is unsettled by the bodies that have started piling up At firs. Nd a desire tond a career Some plot lines that seem promising fizzle others just fade away with no conclusion I was left wanting so much from this book Again the characters and the setting are so well drawn out that you are immersed in Samoan culture Like a beautiful drive through the country only to nd at a blank concrete wall
