Item description for Pacific Intrigue by Allan Carson...
Peter Barclay, a retired Seattle pathologist living in Fiji, finds his peaceful lifestyle disrupted when he is approached by a former colleague to accept a detective, Gerry McCann, as his houseguest. McCann, who works with a counterterrorist group, must go undercover to investigate several murders and terrorist threats in Seattle. With Peter's help and local knowledge, McCann and he follow-up on the few clues from Seattle that led the detective to Fiji.
FBI agent Ann Eaton arrives on the scene to back up McCann. Meanwhile, terrorist activity continues in Seattle with shootings at Seatac Airport, bringing the FBI and other counter-terrorist agencies into the investigation. Eventually Peter and Ann embark undercover on a container ship headed for Seattle and thought to be carrying a nuclear device. The voyage introduces a complex set of characters, some arousing suspicion. Danger threatens as Ann and Peter learn there are two possible Islamic extremists among the passengers or crew. The U.S. Navy is alerted.
Tension Mounts as the ship nears Seattle, and the story reaches its exciting climax. While writing a fine story, Dr. Carson adroitly introduces the fragile relationship that exists between native Fijians and foreigners living on their island.
