From the award winning crime writer R. Barri Flowers and bestselling author of the Murder in Hawaii Mysteries, comes the first book in a new Hawaii detective series, Dead in Pukalani: An Eddie Naku Maui Mystery.
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 last breath and leaving life in paradise behind.
Included with the book 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 his list of victims.
Bonus material also includes excerpts from R. Barri Flowers’ bestselling 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 page-turner in the spirit of Aloha!
