Some Honolulu lawyers called Pancho McMartin the best criminal defense attorney in the islands. He’d admit to being pretty damn good. But he was on a losing streak now—three guilty verdicts in a row—and his confidence was sinking fast. When one of his oldest friends, Giselle, was left comatose after surgery and her husband, Manny, pleaded with him to sue the doctors involved, Pancho couldn’t find a way to avoid a new specialty: medical malpractice. But it wasn’t long before the sudden death of one of the defendants—and a murder charge accusing Manny of being the killer—had Pancho back in the old familiar arena of fighting for his client’s life, while at the same time seeking justice for the O.R. errors that had left Giselle in a permanent vegetative state. In Tropical Doubts, the third legal thriller from David Myles Robinson featuring colorful, fast-thinking Pancho McMartin, medical hijinks merge with murder as surprise twists build in this unpredictable courtroom drama.

About the Author
David Myles Robinson was born in Los Angeles and obtained his J.D. degree in 1975 from the University of San Francisco School of Law, where he met his wife, Marcia Waldorf—who was later to become a Honolulu judge. Always passionate about writing, he completed his first novel about twenty years ago but he says it was so stilted from his years of legal writing that it was “just awful.” Since then, though, he’s gone on to the success of Tropical Lies and Tropical Judgments, his first two popular Pancho McMartin legal thrillers, and a golf mystery, Unplayable Lie.
