About the Book

Andreas had been entrusted with the task of organising a shindig to celebrate the completion of all construction work they had been involved in; the work force had been given a generous bonus for their diligent role in the various ventures; now it was the bosses' turn to celebrate. Andreas own contribution to the affair consisted of booking the gymnasium club, the only place big enough to host the vast numbers of guests and organising a “tab” behind the bar, all acquitted at his break-neck speed, enabling him to sit back and relax so the last thing he needed was one of Viv's nefarious schemes! He had delegated a sizeable degree of responsibility to Ma and Gunari; thus the lautari had been engaged to play at various times during the meal and the catering had Ma's expertise bestowed upon it; ensuring no doubt that there would be a pot of her famous rabbit stew on the menu. Old grievances and vendettas had been put aside when they had been forced to co-exist in their new housing estate but the lavish get-together bringing the tribes together would prove one way or another if the grievances, rooted so deeply in the past were insoluble; or not.
