Phil has an intimate knowledge and understanding of PNG cultures and cultural practices. With his insights, he has adroitly and effectively crafted a PNG detective story which sets out to solve a maze of crimes and expose corruption in PNG at all levels. Phil has written a very absorbing and timely PNG detective story – John Kadiba
A riveting detective story set in the context of the poverty, corruption, depravity and, yes, redemptive possibilities of contemporary Port Moresby and written with great insight into present day PNG and with wonderfully realistic portrayals of Melanesian identity, character and humour. A very good read from a very accomplished author - Keith Jackson
If I had not known that Phil is an Australian, I would have mistaken him for being born and bred Papua New Guinean. It’s a description of real life Port Moresby, a real masterpiece - Regina Dorum
An absolute bottler. Couldn't go to bed until I'd finished it. Recommend it to everyone - Paul Oates
I relished the latest book from the pen of the prolific Fitzpatrick. This is a seminal volume capturing the realities of life and times in contemporary society; warts and all - Robin Lillicrapp
Phil's characters remind me of some of the Moresby identities who have graced PNG Attitude over the past few years. Inspector Metau, his personality and his vehicle, also have similar characteristics to the great lady detective in the famous series The Number One Ladies' Detective Agency. Truth in fiction! - Barbara Short
