Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Death of a Messenger by Robert McCaw

This book is set in Hawaii, as were the previous two I read, Fire and Vengence and Off Grid.

The main protagonist is Chief Detective Koa who is trying to avoid politics and solve crimes.  This is the first book in the series.   I, now, recommend all three of them.   Detective Koa is called in on a brutal, ritualistic murder.   His boss, the Chief of Police, is easily swayed by political considerations.   The murder is complicated by the fact that it is on a US Navy live-fire range and may bring many island notables in for scrutiny.

The setting of the book is beautifully crafted by McCaw.   You can smell the dust, feel the humidity and shiver in the snow!  (Didn’t expect that last one, did you?) 

There are a wealth of characters that somehow does not become confusing.   The plot is intricate and the ending is carefully hidden in the weeds.

I enjoyed the book and Koa’s implacable tenacity.  

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases if you click on a purchasing link below.#CommissionsEarned
