A Brief Summary:

This riveting new mystery series pays loving homage to legendary author John D. MacDonald. Stryker McBride is a former crime reporter who lives on a hugely expensive houseboat, “the Travis McGee.” When Stryker receives an unexpected SOS call from a sultry beauty queen, he agrees to look into the suspicious death of the woman’s grandfather.

As Stryker investigates, he encounters a cast of characters as diverse as Hawaii itself, including Auntie Kealoha, a charming entertainer turned mobster, and her 400 pound right-hand man, a Chinese-Hawaiian named Tiny Maunakea. Soon, Stryker discovers a deadly secret buried deep in the heart of Hawaii that has consequences much larger than one old man’s death.

Our Take:

A fun, smooth and cozy-like story in a cool place like Miami: Although (as far as we know), this is the author’s first attempt to write a mystery novel, he has not disappointed the audience…Readers who like cozy mysteries will enjoy this!

Our Rating: 3.5
