Dead in Pukalani

(2015)
(The first book in the Eddie Naku Maui Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
Private investigator Eddie Naku is hired by attractive divorcee Kathryn Higuchi on Maui to investigate the murder of her sister, Suzette Higuchi Bordeau, wife of a well-known criminal defense attorney. She was gunned down in a shopping center in the Upcountry region of Pukalani.

What seems like a routine case for the ex-police detective turns into a complex murder mystery as Naku uncovers a web of lies, deceit, arms trafficking, infidelity, seduction, betrayal, and more murders as he tries to solve a deadly crime. In the process he becomes a target and must identify the killer or killers before he winds up breathing his own last breath and leaving life in paradise behind.

Included is a complete bonus novelette, Killer Connection.

Honolulu fashion designer Kiyoshi Yoshida had just gone through the worst year of her life after her twin brother, Sergio Matsuko, one-time dedicated and decorated homicide detective for the Honolulu Police Department, was identified as the Aloha Black Scarf Killer, a serial killer who had raped and murdered seven women. He committed suicide before he could be apprehended.

Kiyoshi relocates to Maui, hoping to escape the notoriety, but is pursed by a true crime writer hoping to get info about Matsuko for a book. Also watching Kiyoshi is a stone-cold killer waiting for the right time to add her to her list of victims.

Bonus material also includes excerpts from R. Barri Flowers' Hawaii mystery novels Murder in Maui, Murder in Honolulu, and Seduced to Kill in Kauai.

Dead in Pukalani will keep you entertained and in suspense from beginning to end as a Hawaii mystery and spellbinding listen in the spirit of aloha!
