Revenge of the Shark God—1

“In Hawaiian lore, an eclipse foretold of imminent disaster—a war perhaps, or the death of some high chief. As the earth’s shadow gobbled up the moon, light from distant stars hesitated at the thick layer of cumulus clouds drifting over the island of Oahu. Below the clouds, illumination from a single street lamp filtered through slotted blinds into an office at the Honolulu Aquarium. On the floor, a woman lay unconscious, her wrists and ankles bound with eighty-pound-test fishing line.”

This is the beginning of my mystery-detective novel. What follows is a thrilling adventure that takes our heroine, HPD Detective Lily Graham, from Oahu to the Big Island of Hawaii, where she works to solve the murder of a prominent socialite found dead in the aquarium shark tank.

From a descriptive review on amazon: “James Bond has nothing on Detective Lili’uokalani, or Lily, Graham who doggedly pursues the murderer of a wealthy socialite found floating belly-up in an aquarium. She narrowly escapes death in several heart thumping instances refusing to let the killer get away. She gets into trouble with the law herself breaking all the rules to get to the bottom of the crime. The story is set in contemporary Hawai’i. Snippets of Hawaiian mythology are sprinkled throughout in the telling. The author cleverly informs the reader of Hawaiian culture and tradition without being pedantic. Pidgin (the local dialect) in the dialogue gives an authentic feel to the characters. There is a pinch of magical realism hinting at spirit intervention that is in keeping with Hawaiian mythology. I was impressed with the author’s deep knowledge of the culture. If you have been to Hawaii, you will recognize physical locations detailed with great accuracy. I loved being on the Islands with Lily and friends and was totally caught up in the chase.”

  1. That review sums it up pretty well. “Revenge of the Shark God” definitely had me holding my breath more than a few of times. Jennifer brings the story and Hawaii to life in a big way. All I can say is, read it. You will be glad you did.
