Four years after it happened, police have finally arrested a man over the baffling murder of Janelle Patton on Norfolk Island. The murder may or may not yet be solved, but Norfolk Island still has plenty of secrets. I always thought the biggest coup for Norfolk Island would be to get on the big blue weather map, to be broadcast to millions of viewers who would say 'So that's where Norfolk Island is.' Instead Norfolk Island got on a different map and it had nothing to do with sunshine or rain. On the afternoon of Easter Sunday 2002, somebody killed a woman. A vicious, nasty prolonged attack which pitted a feisty, pretty brunette against a person of great strength, anger and hatred. Her name was Janelle Patton. She fought for her life. And died. In the tradition of true-crime reportage Norfolk scratches the facade of this secretive and protective community, probing murder, myth, history, politics and gossip. Despite being an Australian territory Norfolk is wonderfully and strangely different - a culture where deception, tension and age-old animosities lie just beneath the surface of life in 'paradise'.

I'm a paranormal investigator without a home of my own. So when a wealthy client offers me a lucrative job on a private South Pacific island, I jump at the opportunity. It's not all fun in the sun, though. A dead merman—no, really—with an arrow in his chest has washed up on shore. My investigation reveals a century-old war between the mers and a goblin tribe, who believe the mers stole their treasure. But the real thief was a pirate! He buried the treasure and died before digging it up again. Casper, my guardian angel and sort-of-but-not-really boyfriend, usually helps me out but he's acting all weird and busy. The only person left who can help me find the treasure is the pirate's former girlfriend, who happens to be a forgetful, alcoholic ghost. Oh, and I'm not the only one searching for this treasure. Someone else wants it badly and they're prepared to commit murder to prevent anyone else from getting it… 57,000 words
