Aloha, Lady Blue

Aloha, Lady Blue
by Charley Memminger [Downloadable Audio]

Stryker McBride, a retired crime reporter, lives on his dry-docked houseboat at the plush Bayview Yacht Club, waiting for the one of the elderly members to die so that he can move his boat, the Travis McGee, into one of the coveted boat slips. Meanwhile, McBride and his German Shepards, Kane and Lono, provide security for the club. One day, his old high school classmate, Amber Kam, calls and asks McBride to look into the death of her grandfather. The wealthy old man drowned in six inches of water in a taro patch. Wai Lo Fat's death was ruled an accident but Amber isn't sure. McBride investigates and his journalistic instincts are aroused when he learns that Fat was the second member of a secret Chinese society formed during World War II to die this year. McBride is beaten up for asking too many questions. And one of the biggest gangsters in the islands, Auntie Kealoha requests a meeting. McBride doesn't quit unit he unearths some old and shameful secrets. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Douglas Corleone.]
