Could sweet, ambitious Peggy Doyle be guilty of killing three husbands?

Two-time Lambda Literary Award finalist Neil Plakcy returns to the Hawaiian Islands with a new mystery about blood ties in a state torn by ethnic tension.

Two-time Lambda Literary Award finalist Neil Plakcy returns to the Hawaiian Islands with a new mystery about blood ties in a state torn by ethnic tension. Openly gay Honolulu homicide detective Kimo Kanapa'aka must investigate a series of murders that threaten his own family as well as the citizens he struggles to protect. Billions of dollars are at stake in a fight over who the land of the Aloha State really belongs to. Is it the United States-- or the indigenous people of the islands, many of whom feel their sovereign kingdom was overthrown by American businessmen? At the same time, Kimo and his fire investigator partner, Mike Riccardi, deal with the stress of moving in together to create their own ohana --- a Hawaiian term which means family, as well as community.

POV a gay cop in Honolulu? And a crime that involves the sovereignty movement? A novel about Hawaii that spends more time in Papakolea than Waikiki? This is good stuff. And it almost all works except for a strange self-consciousness about words that are in the Hawaiian language, or that reference local food and culture. It's understandable that these words need some explanation but the explanations read like they've been cut from anthropology text books and are very disruptive to the flow of the novel. In contrast, his handling of the main character's gay lifestyle is quite adroit. Sometimes the pidgin English seems thrown in there just to be exotic, rather than authentic but I suppose that's artistic license. The characters are widely varied and are most successful when they are the ones that show the grittier side of life in paradise. The author has taken on a lot in this novel, and I am curious to see how the next one goes.

Always engaging and exciting and now following Kimo and Mike as they make their new life together. I am looking forward to Zero break. Highly recommended for those who like a good mystery with a nice romance as a back story, although Kimo and Mike certainly don't have your garden variety relationship but of course you would expect that from a headstrong cop and a headstrong fireman all set against the familiar to me island of Oahu. If you are going to read the story please start with book one which is Mahu, I have been faithfully following this series for years now and love it and suspect you will as well.

This is one in a series of Mahu books by Neil Plakcy. Mahu means gay man in Hawaii, though with a negative connotation. I have read all the books in the series and recommend starting with the first book Mahu, which was followed by Mahu Surfer, Mahu Fire, Mahu Vice, and this book Mahu Blood. The main character is a constant through the series, and his development as a gay man, and as a gay man in the work place, is chronicled, within a mystery novel format. Neil Plakcy's writing is very easy to read and compelling, and insights about Hawaii and the coming out experience are chronicled. There is some erotic content, though this is not a major feature of these books. There is another book, Mahu Men, by Neil Plakcy which is a series of short stories, connected to the Mahu novels. I did not start reading Mahu Men until after reading the novels.

"Mahu Blood," is the sixth (but not the last) in Neil Plakcy's detective series set in Honolulu, on the Hawai'ian island of Oa'hu. Irritating Kindle quirks aside, this book beautifully carries the confirmed Plakcy fan further along in the unfolding story of Kimo Kanapa'aka, gay multi-racial Hawai'ian homicide detective. The title is important, because blood is a key feature of this book: from the blood of a murder victim, to the blood of racial identity, to the more complex and non-biological kinship ties that bind people together.

For the first-time reader, the complex backstory might be a little puzzling, but Plakcy takes care to reiterate key elements from the series to create an overall picture. But the book is best read as part of the series, beginning with "Mahu," in which Kimo is forced to out himself, and come to grips with being gay, in order to solve a murder.

Kimo Kanapa'aka is one of the most richly developed and finely drawn characters in modern American fiction. That's, IMHO, in ALL American fiction, not just the gay/detective genre. The distinct nature of Hawai'i as different from the rest of the U.S. is vividly sketched with love and understanding, as is the complex racial-culture makeup of Hawai'i's citizenry--including Kimo's own family and the circle of friends he's know from high school. Every part of Kimo's life, including his evolving relationship with fireman Mike Ricciardi, is woven into the tapestry of this compelling story.

I have loved every one of these books, and would say that all together they offer a literary experience as rich as the great Victorian serialists like Dickens and Trollope. Paperback or e-book, "Mahu Blood" and its fellows are must-reads.

I really enjoyed Plakcy's early work but the newer versions and especially this one have becoming tedious... probably won't buy another unless I read really interesting reviews.

I am a fan of Neils work, and this was an excellent book in terms of its detective story, the Hawaian scenery, and the continuing development of its characters. It needed a little more back story, as it has been a while between book releases, but well worth buying.

However, I would send this book back to Amazon (if I knew how) because the kindle edition wasn't particularly readable - it had errors, especially oblong symbols with question marks in them on every page. It was very irritating,and in the end, didn't make the purchase good value for money, which is a real shame for the talented author. Terry

Kimo keeps me coming back.

I can almost hear the surf music in the background. I love this series. Wish they'd make a movie.
A great mystery read with real sense of authenticity in Hawaii setting and police procedures.
