Death on demand by Paul Thomas( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maori cop Tito Ihaka, 'unkempt, overweight, intemperate, unruly, unorthodox and profane', is a cop unable to play the police politics necessary for promotion, but a man who has a way with women, and he's a stubborn investigator with an uncanny instinct for the truth. Ihaka is in the wilderness, having fallen foul of the new regime at Auckland Central. Called back to follow up a strange twist in the unsolved case that got him into trouble in the first place, Ihaka finds himself hunting a shadowy hitman who could have several notches on his belt. His enemies want him off the case, but the bodies are piling up. Ihaka embarks on a quest to establish whether police corruption was behind the shooting of an undercover cop and--to complicate matters-- he becomes involved with an enigmatic female suspect who could hold the key to everything"--Publisher's web site

Bohemians believe that if you travel light and live for today, you'll never grow old ... Novelist Max Napier didn't set out to make a mess of his life but if you choose to entertain romantic notions and a raffish self-image, it's always on the cards. Now on the brink of turning 50, he's alone in his little flat, out of ideas, out of love and out of fashion. A chance meeting with an old friend arrests the spiral, but not all the ghosts from Max's past are benevolent and there are tricky curves to negotiate on the road to redemption and emotional renewal. Paul Thomas' new novel is an acute, darkly comic portrayal of changing times and the baby boomer generation in the shadow of mid-life crisis
