The Hawaiian word for ghost is Uhane. In this collection of short stories described as Harry Bosch meets Mary Poppins by one reviewer, there are tons of them. It’s hard to tell sometimes who’s living, and who’s dead, even for Danny. He’s a magnet for everything weird. His twisty cases confound the police, but not him. He’s the one who puts out fires. Unsolved murder is a fire that can never be extinguished, and Danny is determined to put out every single one.
In these four stories, the lines between life and death and everything in between are blurred.
The dead love to talk to Danny Morales. A retired Kaua’i cold case detective, he’s working out of an office that’s a former time share sales kiosk on Waikīkī Beach.
In Ke ‘Ahi Pio’ole: The Fire That Never Burns Out, Danny tackles his first case. It looks like a typical problem of a cheating spouse, but things are about to get crazy.
In Wait for Me, the fearless Honolulu PI gets unexpected advice when he helps in a grisly murder investigation—from another killer.
Hard Sun, set on the remote island of Molokai features an unusual problem. A black suitcase filled with a priest’s complete gear for giving the last rites to a dying person, keeps showing up in surprising places. It’s freaking everyone out, including the police.
This story introduces Danny’s lost love, Mando. Can they have a second chance, or will the mysterious suitcase just add to their mutual er, baggage?
In Breakfast Point, Danny travels to Sydney, Australia and uncovers an old crime lurking below the surface. He soon learns that dead critters, just like men, do tell tales.
A.J. Llewellyn is the author of over 250 M/M romance novels. She was born in Australia, and lives in Los Angeles. An early obsession with Robinson Crusoe led to a lifelong love affair with islands, particularly Hawaii and Easter Island.
Being marooned once on Wedding Cake Island in Australia cured her of a passion for fishing, but led to a plotline for a novel. A.J.’s friends live in fear because even the smallest details of their lives usually wind up in her stories. A.J. has a desire to paint, draw, juggle, work for the FBI, walk a tightrope with an elephant, be a chess champion, a steeplejack, master chef, and a world-class surfer. She can’t do any of these things so she writes about them instead.
A.J. I started life as a journalist and boxing columnist, and still enjoys interrogating, er, interviewing people to find out what makes them tick.
She is a member of Sisters in Crime (including Los Angeles and Hawaii chapters), East/West Writers, and Romance Writers of America.
