The Hawaiian islands are north of the equator in the middle of the Pacific Ocean thousands of miles from anywhere. North to Alaska is 3,000 miles
- east to California, 2,400 miles - south to Australia, 5,000 miles and
west to Japan 4,000. Maui sits midway in the chain of eight islands.
On the leeward side is the historical town of Lahaina, home to a group of
four amateur sleuths: Ben, Helen, Justin and Nacho. They appear to be
ordinary people leading ordinary lives, but appearances can be deceiving.
For instance, Justin thinks he may have witnessed a murder.
A few Government spies, a cat and some really resourceful friends join in
the dangerous hunt for the killer and his boss, relying, as usual, on
their natural instincts . . . and a little help from an amazing tech gadget.
About the Author
The Lahaina Mystery Series by Barbara E. Sharp Ten years as Research Director of The Lahaina Restoration Foundation, reading archival microfilms, entering 3,000 pages of history into the computer, writing historical articles for the local newspaper and speaking to community groups, has culminated in the writing of seven mystery novels. The stories follow the adventures of a diverse group of friends who live and work in modern-day Lahaina where they find themselves involved in murder, mayhem and history. The books are fast reads with lots of humor and action as the amateur sleuths use historical research, sting operations, surveillance and their unique talent for deducing. The action centers mostly in and around historic Lahaina town, occasionally in upcountry Maui and at Hana during an archaeological dig. Local residents and visitors from all over the world will recognize locations and the historical sites, that are included in the context of the stories.
