Dark Paradise: Mysteries in the Land of Aloha – Kaimuki Murder Mystery

A very-well done reweaving of the mystery in Hitchcock’s famous movie, Rear Window, into local community Kaimuki. (By the way, the author knows the movie inside and out.)

The narrator – a retired man who likes to observe things (so he built an observation tower/den on top of his house!) – sees the suspicious young man next door bury something in the backyard late at night. The narrator and his wife like movie role-playing, so the story goes along with frequent references to the movie as they play their parts to uncover a bloody murder.

If you like the movie, with some interesting variations on the characters, and enjoy the author’s deft gift for light comedy (which I do), go buy the anthology and enjoy the Kaimuki Murder Mystery. You won’t regret it!
