Book DescriptionCharley Memminger combines a cast of quirky and sometimes dangerous island characters with a mystery that you'll never forget. This riveting story introduces Stryker McBride, who lives on a three hundred thousand dollar houseboat at a small yacht club. The former crime reporter has been keeping a low profile since being shot by a cop while investigating police corruption. But when Stryker receives a phone call from a beautiful former high school classmate, he's drawn back into society to look into the death of the woman's grandfather. Soon, Stryker's investigation leads him to a deadly secret buried deep in the heart of Hawaii. Vivid and exhilarating, you can almost hear the pounding of the surf and catch the scent of plumeria. Exotic women and glorious scenery provide the backdrop for a novel that is as vibrant as its locale.
Editorial Review"Whatever you call it, McDonald homage or Memminger original, it's pretty darned good." --Booklist "A great read--extraordinary! For anyone who lives in Hawaii, visits Hawaii, or even dreams of going to Hawaii. Oh, what the heck, it's for anyone who loves a crackling good story!" --Pat Sajak, long-time host of Wheel of Fortune "Everything you want in a mystery-thriller: beautiful, dangerous women, ugly, even more dangerous thugs, a rash of inexplicable murders, and, best of all, two fairly unreliable canine companions, Kane and Lono. The only question is, 'when's the next one coming out?'" --Bruce Cameron, New York Times bestselling author of A Dog's Purpose "In a long and legendary career as a crime reporter in Hawaii, Charley Memminger has met more than his share of hit men, cons, and colorful characters. They leap off the page, packing a Hawaiian punch and taking the reader to a lusty luau on the underside of paradise. Smart, funny, tough, and sparkles with insight. Stryker McBride gets my vote as Hawaii's newest hero. I hate to say it, but move over, Magnum." --Kinky Friedman "Charley Memminger should be named Hawaii's state gem. Sorry black coral, he's just better than you are. His great first novel made me feel like I just took a Hawaiian vacation, and not your usual boring beach vacation, but a thrilling trip filled with corrupt cops and libidinous Russians." --A.J. Jacobs, author of The Know-it-All "Memminger does for Hawaii what John D. MacDonald did for Florida: makes it come alive." --David Houle, author of The Shift Age "Thoroughly authentic and entertaining. A fast and furious ride with unforgettable characters, hot Hawaiian nights, and a dark and dirty secret that could scar the face of America's paradise." --Andre and Maria Jacquemetton, executive producers of Mad Men "Chilling and sometimes hilarious... Shines with a cruel brilliance and an honest hypnotic power." --Frank South, executive producer of Baywatch and Melrose Place
