Have read the first story, “Jimmy Chan, Counterspy” by Bob Newell, in Dark Paradise: Mysteries in the Land of Aloha. Fun and lightly humorous. Jimmy finds himself way out of his league, up against Chinese and Russian spies experienced in very-modern rendition and torture. And his client is a former US intelligence agent whose reasons sound a bit suspect themselves.
To find out how it turns out, go buy the book and meet Jimmy Chan, Counterspy.
