    Story

    Detective Sergeant Apelu Soifua knows firsthand how cops work in the big city; he spent seven years on the beat with the San Francisco PD. There, the job was just a job. But back home on American Samoa, it’s personal. On an island, there are no strangers. Secrets may be commonly known but they’re never discussed, and solving crimes requires a certain…finesse. Here, Apelu walks the line between two cultures: Samoan versus American, native versus new.

    John S. says: "Great narration and interesting setting"
    "Good book."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Pago Pago Tango the most enjoyable?

    The fact that I lived in Samoa from 1982 to 1984 and knew the island and lifestyle. It really hit home. We also have an adopted Smaoan son who will be 29 this month. We loved living there and was very happy to read a book about the island. I think there was only one murder when we lived there.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Very surprised by who was the ring leader in the end.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    The main character. He did well pronouncing the words correctly. Missprounced a few.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt he ended the book a few chapters short. There should have been a wrapup of arrest and find out what happens to the bad guys. Instead we were left hanging. Was dissapointed with the end of the book.
