Nightmare in Paradise (chiefs, withchdoctors, volcanos and us)
For newlyweds, Roger and Irene, life was full of promise as they embarked on their new life together, business partners with the paramount Chief of an exotic and remote island in the Pacific in the running of a small resort and associated tour business.
The island, Tanna, Vanuatu, retained its traditional lifestyle and that, along with the active volcano and cargo cult, drew people from around the world. The eagerly anticipated romance associated with this simple life was soon dispelled as their time was spent being the interface between sophisticated guests and the witchdoctors, chiefs, and island life.
This true story follows their life on the island and the troubles which build up, culminating with Roger’s kidnap, ensuing court cases and deaths. It is a humorous and dramatic tale which gives an insight into the realities of the Pacific dream.
