A mysterious volcanic island. A strange folktale. A missing golden statue. All these wait to be discovered in “The Golden Malaita Eagle”, an unforgettable novel that brilliantly mixes an exhilarating plot, breathtaking locations and richly drawn characters. Written by author G. J. Giddy, this tale of comrades embroiled in a life-changing adventure while on vacation is reflective of the author’s love for traveling and guts.

Giddy’s brief stint in the navy lent him the chance to see the world and he channels his vivacity and spirit of adventure in his novel’s characters Brian and James, best mates who grew up together in Wyong. Now in their early thirties, Brian and James, decide to go on holiday overseas. Unknown to the two, more than a vacation awaits them in their exotic destination of Solomon Islands. Their getaway—an alcohol-soaked odyssey spiced up by rollicking sexual escapades they have with some of the island’s gorgeous women— takes an unexpected turn when James is believed to be the incarnation of a white man prophesied to return an important artifact, the titular golden Malaita eagle. What will transpire from the incredible coincidence? Readers will find out in a saga that takes turns to be hilarious, introspective and outrageously addictive.

Bold and thoroughly enjoyable, all the twists and turns of “The Golden Malaita Eagle” will keep readers engaged from beginning to end.
