Note
The Scott/Scrivener murders shocked several nations and attracted a huge amount of media attention, partly because of John Scott's role as go-between in the hostage crisis during the coup in 2000. Drawn back to Fiji from his new home in England by the tragedy, Owen Scott embarks on a quest for the truth - not only about the then unsolved crime, but also about his own life as the son of a charismatic, but drunken and abusive father, and the darkness at the centre of an outwardly idyllic tropical childhood. From the fading colonial splendour of plantation life to the violent political coups and ruthless media exploitation of the modern era, this is a true and remarkable story of love, death and memory set against the backdrop of a troubled Pacific paradise
