. . . to mark the last day of the Forever Poi promo. It’s JJ today, hey-ho.
Forever Poi is the fourth mystery and third official paying case in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series. It has us—my cousin Rey, her best friend Linda, and myself—out to solve a double-arson and murder. The big question: who torched two Chinatown art galleries and left two charred bodies in the rubble?
Are the arsonist and killer the same individual? We’re pretty sure he/she is and as we attempt to find out who he/she is, we encounter a plethora of possible culprits. The day before the fire, Carlos Kawena, one of the arson victims, had a rather nasty break-up with his lover-partner, James-Henri Ossature. There were financial issues, too, which has us wondering: could James-Henri have done the dastardly deed to collect insurance and be rid of his lover? What about the second victim, Mary-Louise Crabtree, a former queenpin? Given her sketchy past, might a former foe have murdered her? If so, was Carlos merely collateral damage?
We’re hired by insurance adjuster Xavier Shillingford to assist in the investigation and it soon becomes apparent that a professional arsonist did not set the fires. As we immerse themselves in this perplexing and complex case, we find a few more bodies lying at our feet . . . and twists and turns that have our heads reeling. But who doesn’t welcome a challenge or three?
