Book Review Friday: Aloha, Lady Blue

Aloha, Lady Blue

By Charley Memminger

Stryker McBride, a former Honolulu crime reporter, has been keeping a low profile since his job nearly got him killed a couple of years ago, but that all changes when an old classmate asks him to look into the death of her elderly grandfather.  As Stryker investigates he uncovers more than he bargained for and encounters a variety of colorful and dangerous characters with secrets of their own to protect. 

Aloha, Lady Blue is a funny, fast-paced, action-packed mystery.  Charley Memminger’s writing style pays homage to John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee series, and his vivid descriptions make the island paradise come to life, doing for Hawaii what MacDonald did for Florida. This story grabbed me and had me laughing out loud and I could almost hear the surf pounding in my ears as I read Memminger’s descriptions of his beloved Hawaii.  If a Hawaiian vacation isn’t in your budget this year, Aloha, Lady Blue will get you there without the airfare or the TSA.
