Editorial Reviews

PILIKIA IS MY BUSINESS is a must read for fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie

Plum. Val's sarcastic wit and no-nonsense attitude is reminiscent of Stephanie's sassy character. The fast-moving plot and snappy dialogue unite to form an entertaining story from the very first page. I am hoping that Mark Troy will follow this story with a line of other Val Lyon books.

Review of "PILIKIA IS MY BUSINESS" by Mark Troy "Palapala (Writing) Is His Business!" Usually, my penchant is not for private detective novels. However, "Pilikia" has definitely altered my taste. I thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Troy's riveting Hawaiian mystery! Most impressive was the author's ability to manipulate his interesting cast of characters, allowing the narrative to glide to a suspense filled crescendo. Also, he was able to create his scenes with a minimum of detail. His familiarity with Hawaii enabled him to blend the Island's character and uniqueness into his novel, thereby enhancing the overall setting. If you're in the market for an interesting and unique mystery read, I definitely recommend Mr. Mark Troy's "PILIKIA IS MY BUSINESS." Posted by Brad Bradbury
