Review; Killman by Graeme Kent

As I've already read the first two books in the Kella and Conchita Mysteries series by Graeme Kent, I felt compelled to read the third one named Killman. Today I'll post my review of the novel.

Description from Goodreads
Sister Conchita, the young nun with a flair for detection, is immersed in another Solomon Islands investigation when an islander who claims to be a reincarnation of Noah is drowned outside his ark. To make matters worse, Conchita suspects that the murderer might be a Japanese soldier, still prowling the jungle fifteen years after the end of World War II. Once again she enlists the aid of her friend Sergeant Ben Kella of the Solomon Islands Police Force. Together they try and track down the malevolent Killman, a professional assassin who is introducing a reign of terror to the beautiful but dangerous island of Malaita that they both love so much. This time their perilous quest takes them as far as the wild Polynesian island of Tikopia, the almost legendary tiny island of the four kingdoms.

My Thoughts on the Book
Even though it wasn't as good as the first two books, I still really enjoyed reading Killman. The author manages to blend pidgin and English well in the dialogues, as well as including folklore and customs. I also liked the descriptions in the book, which almost made me want to travel to the Solomon Islands.
