Overview

This novel penetrates deeply into the underworld of Hawai'i. With amazing detail, armed robbery, burglary, corruption, drug trafficking, gambling, murder, murder for hire, political interference, prostitution, racism, and white slave trade form the background while the opportunistic characters attempt to navigate through a transitional period of laissez faire social attitudes to one of increasing restraint. Tropical exuberance slowly acquiesces to the pressures of modernity. Political interference dissipates justice. Crime pays in Chinatown. Trust dissolves into distrust. Welcome to Paradise!

An intruging slice into the life of a small time crook and his tangled up connections with the big guys. This exciting novel by Justice Hawk captures the Hawaiian criminal underworld. It's fascinating the way the author captures the relationship of the main character with all levels and types of criminals weaving their lives together. Kept me on the edge of my seat! I liked the descriptive details in the stories and characters.
