New From R. Barri Flowers, MURDER OF THE HULA DANCERS (Leila Kahana Maui Mysteries, Book 3)






Murder of the Hula Dancers is the third book in the popular Leila Kahana series of Maui mystery and suspense novels, following Murder in Maui and Murder on Kaanapali Beach, by bestselling crime writer R. Barri Flowers.

Maui County homicide detective and composite sketch artist Leila Kahana and her partner Detective Jonny Chung investigate the murders of beautiful hula dancers by a serial killer dubbed, "The Hula Killer." Each victim was stabbed to death. As they chase leads and suspects, Leila starts to believe that Chung might be a dirty cop. But should she act on her suspicions and report it to her boss and former lover, Lieutenant Blake Seymour?

Meanwhile, Leila is in the midst of a new relationship with handsome restaurateur Maxwell Kishimoto. When he asks her to marry him, she's conflicted due to her conservative upbringing and independence.

Also in the Homicide Unit, Detectives Trent Ferguson and Rachel Lancaster investigate the murder of a woman whose charred corpse was found in a vehicle along a deserted road. Could solving one case help solve the other? Or be an impediment?

As the Hula Killer continues to evade capture with the body count rising, Leila volunteers to go undercover as a hula dancer to try and flush out the murderer. But is the cunning killer one step ahead of them? Is Leila putting her life at risk to become another one of his victims?

Bonus material includes an excerpt from book four in the Leila Kahana Mysteries, Murder in Upcountry; as well as excerpts from other Hawaii series by R. Barri Flowers, Dead in Kihei (An Eddie Naku Maui Mystery) and Murder on the Big Island (A Hawaii FBI Thriller). The soap opera novelette, Kaanapali Beach Paradise-Part 2, and the complete suspense thriller short story, Kill and Say Goodbye, are also included.

Fans of the first two books in the Leila Kahana series of mysteries will find Murder of the Hula Dancers the perfect follow up and prelude to entertaining future books in series.

Killer Connection (A Hawaii Mystery Novelette) by R. Barri flowers







From award winning crime writer R. Barri Flowers and bestselling author of the Murder in Hawaii Mysteries comes a gripping Maui mystery suspense novelette, Killer Connection.

Honolulu fashion designer Kiyoshi Yoshida had just gone through the worst year of her life after losing her twin brother and husband, costing Kiyoshi nearly everything she held most dear.

In what still gave Kiyoshi chills in disbelief, her brother Sergio Matsuko, one time dedicated and decorated homicide detective for the Honolulu Police Department, had stunned nearly everyone who knew him by being identified as the Aloha Black Scarf Killer, a serial killer who had raped and murdered seven women, before committing suicide in a house fire.

Seeking to escape the notoriety, Kiyoshi relocated to Maui, hoping to somehow reclaim her life while working as a saleswoman in an upscale clothing store.

Connor Jansen, a bestselling true crime writer, tracked down Kiyoshi, hoping to get information on Matsuko for his latest book on the notorious island serial killer. Using a pseudonym, Connor worms his way into Kiyoshi’s life, only to have second thoughts about his deception.

In the meantime, a killer has been watching Kiyoshi, waiting for the right time to add here to her list of victims.

Bonus material includes excerpts from R. Barri Flowers’ bestselling Hawaii mystery novels, Murder in Maui, Murder in Honolulu, and Seduced to Kill in Kauai; as well as a glitzy contemporary suspense novelette, Kaanapali Beach Paradise.
