There are certain half-blood Ryxin women living on Earth who carry a dark and dangerous secret. On the island of Muritai they begin to die. One by one they are being brutally murdered - but by who and why? The Human police have little interest in finding the truth. They consider the alien population on Earth to be less than worthy of their help. Nayxana Vasco is the first of these women to become a victim. Her cruel husband, Oskin, a Human government worker is found at the scene and immediately taken into custody. But is he guilty? Their son doesn't think so. He goes to see Curtis McCoy, Ryxin private investigator and asks for his help to find his mother's killer. And so Curtis and his Trainee Assistant, Janux embark on the difficult and dangerous task of finding the truth. If you like a good murder mystery, then you'll enjoy this book, which follows on from Book One - Aliens in Godzone. Passion, the unknown and affairs of the heart are all present in a New Zealand that's forever changing.
