A fierce battle over Maui water rights turns deadly
McKenna’s plans for a romantic getaway on Maui are put on hold when one of his girlfriend’s family is accused of murder. As McKenna digs into the case, he quickly learns nothing is as it seems on Maui, and the questions he’s asking might get him killed.
The eighth Trouble in Paradise island mystery featuring senior sleuth McKenna and his PI-wannabe sidekick Chance Logan.
Whatever happened to easy? McKenna had the perfect cover for his plan to propose marriage. He and his girlfriend Benni would help his elderly tenant, Mrs. Nakamura, fly to Maui for a visit with her pregnant granddaughter. Then, he’d take Benni for a walk on the beach. He had a ring, but did he have the courage to pop the question?
The minute they land, McKenna’s perfect plan hits a snag. Mrs. Nakamura’s grandson-in-law is being accused of murder—and she wants her amateur sleuth landlord to investigate. Reluctantly, McKenna agrees to take the case with his friend Chance. They dive into an investigation that starts in a seedy hospitality club and goes straight downhill. Before they know it, the battle for Maui’s water is raging around the amateur sleuths and they have too many questions to answer.
Why was the murder victim living under a fake identity? Why is their client claiming he committed the crime? And, who is the mystery man stalking them?
On a dusty cane road, McKenna must answer the toughest decision of his life—live rich or die poor? There’s no way it’s the question he wanted to face, but if McKenna doesn’t think fast, he may never ask another.
