Three Summer Reads
Here's three books you might enjoy, all of them more along the lines of a cozy than hardboiled or noir. I've met and talked with all of the main characters, and they're cool guys (and one gal) who deserve a long life.
In MAHU SURFER, Kimo Kanapa’aka goes undercover on Oahu’s north shore to catch a gunman who has killed three surfers. After telling the truth about his gay lifestyle to family and friends, he must lie to them about his return to the force in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation.
Journalist and amateur sleuth Cassie O’Malley is back in A MINOR CASE OF MURDER. When Andy MacTavish brings baseball to White Sands Beach, the local birdwatching contingent is freaked by the location of Sand Skeeter Ballpark. Will they resort to murder to protect the birds’ nesting areas?
In WHACK A MOLE, a long dormant serial killer seems ready to strike again. Narrator Danny and his partner Ceepak, the cop with a stiff moral code, must uncover a hidden mole with a twisted code all his own. If they don’t catch the killer in time, someone they love may become the next victim.
