Overview

Elima-imaginary Elima. It is one of the Neighbor Islands. That is what the residents of the main island of Oahu call the other islands in Hawaii. The people of Elima-the haoles (white newcomers), the Asians, the Portuguese, the native Hawaiians-in the following pages are an amalgam of what one can find on any of the real Neighbor Islands.



Elima is a county in its own right: the island has its own mayor, police force, tax structure, and share of corruption. Once almost entirely rural-with the standard crops of sugarcane, pakalolo and pineapple-it has been discovered by Mainland and Japanese entrepreneurs. Along with the other blessings of civilization have now come sprawling resort hotels, a rising crime rate, and the twenty-first century con man.



The first four Kay Yoshinobu novels are offered together for the first time in this one volume:

DEATH OF THE TIN MAN'S WIFE

THE LEFT HAND OF DEATH

DEATH OF A DEVELOPER

A METHOD TO MURDER.




Kay (Keiko) Yoshinobu, a young criminal defense attorney, has a talent for investigation. When homicide hits Elima, Kay, with partners Sidney Chu and Quality Smith, provide a formidable defense team.



Both friendship and conflict are unavoidable with the local law enforcement officers like detective Hank DeMello and policewoman Corky Medeiros. Also unavoidable is social contact with the criminal court judges like the famously gorgeous Lisa Raines and the Charlie-Chan like county pathologist Cal Lim.



Elima is a close, almost closed community. Trouble occurs when visitors drawn to the island stay on to exploit the economy and ruin the environment. This old, old story provides the tantalizing new puzzles Kay Yoshinobu excels in solving.



Boson Books offers several mysteries and collections of short stories by John Broussard. Volume 2 of The Yoshinobu Mysteries contains 4 more exciting novels. For an author bio and photo, reviews, and a reading sample, visit bosonbooks.com.
