Murder on Easter Island is a mystery thriller written by Gary D. Conrad where Detective Daniel “Hawk” Fishinghawk of New York is assigned to Easter Island to assist Chilean authorities in solving a series of cannibalistic murders. Raised by his Cherokee grandfather, he has developed enhanced sensitivity and excellent skills in crime solving but this is an extraordinary case. As soon as he arrives in the paradise-like island, two more murders are committed and he finds himself grasping for clues. As he struggles to get to the bottom of these killings, he is forced to go back to his past and the colorful but gruesome history of the island with the help of Tiare Rapu, an elderly woman who has lived on the island all her life.
Murder on Easter Island: A Daniel “Hawk” Fishinghawk Mystery is an engrossing story where the past catches up with the present. Gary D. Conrad’s main protagonist is a man with a colorful past. When he is sent to Easter Island where a series of cannibalistic murders has been committed by an elusive criminal, he has to contend with the island’s past to solve the grisly crimes. Informative, fast paced, with well developed characters, Murder on Easter Island is completely engaging. The novel has enough twists and turns to make the reader hold on to its pages and the ending is something that is quite unexpected. I highly recommend this book not only to fans of detective stories, but to those who simply want an excellent read!
