And when the dead come to life and blood debts have to be paid, will you have the courage to do what must be done? Matiu Douglas has a bone tiki he sto...le from a tangi.

Fearful creatures from legend are rising up around him, and Mat faces a terrifying ordeal. And there is nowhere left to hide...not even in another world. A breathtaking adventure set in two parallel New Zealands, from exciting new author David Hair. David, who is from Wellington, is currently living in India. The Bone Tiki is his first novel.
