And the rave is repeated in Crime Watch
Craig Sisterson, the hard-working blogger and promoter of Kiwi crime fiction (see righthand column for the link), is also the face behind a monthly column in The Herald on Sunday, one of New Zealand's most well-read papers.
In this weekend's crime fiction round-up, he highlights Wiki Coffin and A Watery Grave, as well as Andrew Grant's Death in the Kingdom (Monsoon) and The Crime of Huey Dunstan by James McNeish (Vintage).
Says Craig: "Druett marvellously combines mystery and history in a unique crime novel setting. Wiki is a terrific and engaging lead, the book is drenched in maritime colour and detail, and the murder mystery itself twists to a satisfying end."
