Pancho McMartin is back! After one of Hawaii’s most beloved celebrities is murdered, Pancho gets an unexpected call from Judge Makena, the administrative judge. The good judge, short of court appointed attorneys, wants Pancho to represent a young, homeless black man, Jackson Steele, accused of the murder. But not only has the famously tolerant Aloha State erupted in racial tensions at outrage over the loss of Hawaii’s iconic performer, the evidence against Jackson is compelling. As Pancho reluctantly goes to work for his new client, he and his lead investigator and best friend, Drew Tulafono, find themselves immersed in some of the darker underbellies of this tropical paradise. The problem? There are many on the island with reasons to keep the secrets of the murder just that – secret. Even if it means an innocent young man goes to jail.
I was contacted by the publisher and asked to review a copy of this book, I am a huge crime fiction fan as my followers on Goodreads, Facebook and this blog will know so I was delighted to be able to give it a go.
The book flows so well, the characters are great and it kept my attention right up to the last minute trying to guess and hope that justice would be served. This is the first book I have read by David Myles Robinson and it won’t be my last – I thoroughly enjoyed it – 4 stars from me.
