A dynamic group has emerged in Auckland whose members refer to themselves as the Tribe. Mainly Polynesian, they grow up together, rise from poverty and become successful professionals, bound by love and fierce loyalty.
At the centre is Aaron, who lives at the edge of danger, shady dealings and self-destruction. When Daniel receives a call in Hawaii telling him that Aaron has been killed, he returns to New Zealand and steps into the most dangerous crisis the Tribe has faced. They must confront the truth about who Aaron is and what they, as the Tribe, have become, while facing the infidelity and greed that threatens to tear the group apart.
"The novel deals powerfully with loyalty, love, and relationships. Wendt shows the great force of human emotion – damaging, dangerous, resilient, passionate, supportive – and just how difficult it can be to face up to unpleasant realities in ourselves and others. He is a superb storyteller and I found myself carried along with the characters, by turns truly irritated with Daniel, sorry for his father, angry with Aaron, in awe of Mere and Laura – in short, I was captivated and could not put this book down."Sue Esterman - Booksellers NZ
"...it's an engrossing read, with believably flawed chracters, sustained tension and an unsentimental insight into growing up Polynesian in urban New Zealand."Catherine Robertson - NZ Listener
