Detective Fletch Martin has an attitude problem. A Pakeha expat working for the Melbourne Police, he pops pills like tic tacs, resents the hell out of anyone who’s isn’t white and straight and is so unpopular that his own wife and kids hate him. When he shoots and kills an unarmed Brazilian boy and gets transferred back to Auckland, his life goes from bad to worse.
Someone’s slaughtering the Latin immigrants of Auckland and Martin’s search for the killer leads him into a seething subculture steeped in hidden spiritual practices and black magic. Before he knows it he is being hunted by the spirit of dead murderer hell-bent on a particularly vicious brand of psycho-sexual revenge.
A startling exploration of insanity and real–life magic, Nganga is sure to shock and mystify, terrify and entice.
