This one starts with Charlie Noah.
Charlie is rich, stunningly beautiful, respected as a writer for newspapers and high class magazines in Austrailia and around the world. She is married to an extremely successful insurance high flyer and lives in a mansion overlooking Sydney Harbour. Her home is surrounded by well heeled friends who (She thought) respected and admired her.
Most of the opulence surrounding her lifestyle came from her husband, Reginald Noah. Her own income was substantial but his bordered on the obscene.
All was going well till Charlie discovered her husband was having an affair with a neighbor. One of many it seems. Charlie threatened to expose his affair in one of the magazines she wrote for. Reginald Noah locked her out of the family home and that's when Charlie threatened to expose his corrupt and fraudulent dealings within the insurance company which employed him.
Charlie knew she was in trouble and withdrew large amounts of money from her private bank accounts and arranged for the construction of a totally new identity complete with relevant identification papers, drivers license and certificates as well as a new off shore bank account. Its not hard when you know the right people and Charlie knew them very well.
Reginald Noah was livid and knew he had to stop his wife from blowing the whistle on his less than savory acts. Stephen Pope is a hit man for hire and hire him Noah does.
Ben Hood was bullied by Rod Reid into seeing a psychiatrist, Doctor Jackson Pugh, in reference to his supposed sexual hang ups. Well Ben doesn't have any but Rod sure believes he does. So Ben decided to humor Rod and see Pugh.
After the session the Doctor tells him it will take a few weeks to get the results back. Ben isn't sure he wants them back. He is, however, sure he is taking a couple of weeks off.
At the southern end of Seven Mile Beach in Port Douglas in Far North Queensland, Australia, there is a beautiful cove fringed with pure white sand. The land fronting this cove is mostly rainforest and privately owned by an eccentric French millionaire who had two pole houses constructed on either end of the cove, almost a kilometer apart and each out of sight of the other. He had named the cove La Place De La Magic, or The Place of Magic. The millionaire rents both houses out since he doesn't use either.
Ben Hood will be staying in one of them and Charlie Noah will be in the other.
So begins another great Ben Hood tale.
This one has Ben, a Ben who's only looking for a vacation but finds a damsel in distress, Charlie, a Charlie who has disappeared with a vast amount of her husbands money, Reginald Noah who will hire many to find Charlie, a killer named Pope, Rick Turner, a Rick Turner who is wounded and almost killed by the man looking for Charlie, Tara Lennox, an attack on Charlie, a Charlie who then heads for the islands, a bracelet that has to clues to Charlie's destination, a wounded killer, two men who take his place, the Vanuatu Islands, a house on one of the islands that belongs to Charlie, murders that took place around WWII at that house, the bones of the murderer, the bones of his two Vanuatu victims who were young women, one of whom was the daughter of a local chief, twelve missing rubies, ghosts, ghosts that speak to Ben, a bay mare who is wild but gets close to Ben, a restaurant, the restaurant owner Christine, her cousin, murder, attempted murder and Ben Hood on one roller coaster of a ride to save a beautiful woman and solve a mystery that's decades old.
Five Stars and then some.
