Ninety-Nine – Please Don’t Decline

It’s Rey again.  Hey, how ya doin’ on this gorgeous Sunday?  For two more days you can get Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie? for a mere 99 cents.  How can you decline an offer like that, I ask ya.

Hula is our first professional case as private eyes of our newly founded Triple Threat Investigation Agency.  A rich old guy hires us to find out what his young, pretty wife is up to.  He thinks she’s having an affair, which would help him in the divorce department.  Given her looks and history, we’re inclined to agree.

Before we can discover anything, though, we find her in the ocean—and she ain’t swimming.  Did the old guy kill her?  If so, then why hire us?  Maybe it was a lover?  Or her twin brother—the one with a dicey past?

A few more bodies cross our path . . . as do drug dealers, gang members, and a druggie . . . not to mention a zany person or two.  Our first case is anything but simple, but we give it our best (we may be new to the P.I. world, but “sticktoitiveness” is our middle names).

What we’d unearthed in the preceding days extended to the sordid world of drugs and gambling, two ugly and dangerous addictions that could drag you under and far like the Molaka’i Express, which was the crossing of the Kaiwi Channel from volcano-formed Molaka’i, Hawaii’s fifth largest island, and possessed exceptionally strong currents. If the vice didn’t batter you, the enabler—the human component—was there to ensure you remained dependent, paid up and/or stayed high, and never screwed him or her.

“Man, she must have really pissed someone off.”

“Big time.” I peered across the darkening Pacific and reflected on that which had brought us to Hawaii: a desire to open our own P.I. agency. But the body sprawled across rough wave-soaked rocks begged one crucial question: what did a meteorologist, actress, and scriptwriting assistant know about detecting? So what if they’d played amateur sleuths several months ago during a murder-filled week at an eerie Connecticut mansion? That didn’t grant them the expertise or street smarts to manage a bona-fide case.

. . . But maybe the more imperative question at the moment was: how were they going to explain a simple undercover-case gone terribly wrong?

Ninety-Nine Sure Does Shine

Hey, it’s Rey.  In case you haven’t heard, today through May 17th, you can get Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie? for just 99 cents.  Are we talking bargain, or what?

So, for those not in the know, Hula is our first professional—paying—case as private eyes of the Triple Threat Investigation Agency.  We have to find out what the young, pretty wife of an old far—uh—millionaire is up to.  He thinks she’s having an affair, which would help him in the divorce department.

Unfortunately, we find her floating in the ocean before we can discover much.  Did hubby kill her?  A lover?  Her shady brother?  More bodies drop as we search for clues.  And if that’s not enough, we encounter some really shady characters—including drug dealers and gang members.

It’s as thrilling a case as it is dangerous.  Yeah, we’re new to the P.I. world, but we’re also patient, persistent and persevering.  In the end, we don’t do too badly.  He-he.  That’s all I’m sharing.

Maybe you’d like to read out about our crazy adventures as we piece together this puzzler?  We’d sure love it if you did.

Not a Dime, but Ninety-Nine

Through May 17th, you can get Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie? for a mere 99 cents.  Cousin Reynalda, who loves all things sales, says it’s a steal and “go for it”.

It’s JJ today, the one who narrates our exciting adventures—or mis-adventures as we sometimes laughingly call them—as the novice private eyes of the Triple Threat Investigation Agency.

Hula’s our first paying case.  Rey, Linda and I have to find out what an elderly millionaire’s pretty, young wife is up to.  He thinks it’s an affair.  Unfortunately, before we can discover her secret, she’s found floating in the Pacific.

Rey drew another long breath. “How long has she been gone?”

I checked. “Twelve minutes, give or take.”

“I’m cold.”

“Carmie’s colder,” I murmured, unable to quash the morbid desire to peer down. Contusions and scratches were visible on flesh not concealed by a raspberry tank top, currant-red shorts, white gym socks and adidas Stella McCartney runners. Bruises discolored her long neck and face, and a mammoth bump overlaid half her forehead. “I wonder what she was thinking the last few moments.”

“You mean, did she see her life flash before her eyes?” Once again she regarded Carmie. “Did she know her killer? Did she scream if she didn’t? Did she fight?”

“And if there was no killer, did she realize she was plunging to her death when she lost footing?”

“Two summers ago, Lynne, a social contact who got a few good commercial gigs—and stole two of mine—had been hit by one of those ice-cream trucks with the clown face and annoying ringa-ringa-ling. She swore when she went down she saw Jim Morrison dressed in white leather leaning against tall gates made of diamonds and rubies, and waving her over. On the other side of the glittering gates was a river of champagne winding through fields of Little Debbie Jelly Creme Pies and Swiss Rolls.”

I shifted and stared, my expression not unlike Dorothy, the Golden Girls Bea Arthur character, would present one of her roommates when they said something utterly absurd.

Rey looked affronted. “I’m just telling you what she told me.”

Sighting something from the corner of my eye, I glanced upward. “The first responders are here.”

Before you know it, we’re finding more bodies, getting in the way of ornery drug dealers and p’o’d gang members—and they in ours!  It becomes increasingly more complicated if not complex as we track clues . . . never mind becomes precarious when we ask questions people would prefer we didn’t ask.

Perhaps you’d like to check us out?  We’d be very appreciative if you did.

Ninety-Nine . . . so Divine

Starting today through the 17th, you can get Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie? for 99 cents!

It’s Linda on post patrol today—and on time too (not like that little Forever Poi fiasco).

Hula’s our first official—paying—case.  Yes, Rey, JJ and I are true-blue (novice) private investigators now and we’ve been hired to learn what an elderly millionaire’s pretty, young wife is up to.  Is she having an affair, as hubby believes?

There’s a twist: said wife is found murdered along the beautiful shores of Oahu.  And there’s a secret all right, one of many in fact, and they don’t all belong to the deceased woman.  Who of this unconventional cast of characters is the murderer?  We’ve dealt with a sundry of murderers in past, thanks to a weird week at a haunted mansion in Connecticut, but this new set of quirky personalities proves taxing.

What initially seemed a straightforward task is anything but.  And what do the worlds of drugs and gangs have to do with what’s transpired?

As we’re attempting to fit puzzle pieces together, we stumble across a few more bodies.  Here’s an opportunity for us to prove we made a wise choice in becoming bona-fide detectives.  But can we do so before the murderer strikes again?

The Fifth Herewith

Welcome to the fifth and final day of the free Can You Hula like Hilo Hattie promotion.

As novice P.I.s, we accept our first official assignment: uncover the secret an elderly millionaire’s pretty, young wife is harboring.  Is she having an affair, as hubby believes?

If JJ, Rey and I succeed, our newly founded business, The Triple Threat Investigation Agency, will prove a viable venture.

There’s a twist, though: the wife is found murdered along a beautiful, desearted Oahu beach.  And there’s a secret all right, one of many, and they don’t all belong to the poor deceased woman.  Who of the unconventional cast of characters is the murderer?  As we attempt to fit puzzle pieces together, we stumble across several more bodies.

What seems an easy task becomes anything but.  We’ve dealt with a sundry of murders and murderers in past, thanks to a wacky week in Connecticut, but this new set of quirky personalities proves challenging if not taxing.  Nevertheless, we have enough faith in our budding P.I. talents to persevere and unscramble clues.

Here’s an opportunity for us to prove we made a wise choice in becoming bona-fide detectives.  But can we do it before the murderer strikes again?

Going Forth with the Fourth

It’s Day 4 of the free Can You Hula like Hilo Hattie promotion.  My BFF, Rey, loves that word f-r-e-e; she’s been trilling it all morning long.

Hula marks our first official case as private investigators; we’ve been hired to find out what secret a millionaire’s pretty, young wife is keeping.  Unfortunately, before we discover what it is, she’s found floating in the Pacific.  And the secret?  It’s one of many, and not all hers.

Instead of providing a synopsis today, here’s an excerpt:

What we’d unearthed in the preceding days extended to the sordid world of drugs and gambling, two ugly and dangerous addictions that could drag you under and far like the Molaka’i Express, which was the crossing of the Kaiwi Channel from volcano-formed Molaka’i, Hawaii’s fifth largest island, and possessed exceptionally strong currents. If the vice didn’t batter you, the enabler—the human component—was there to ensure you remained dependent, paid up and/or stayed high, and never screwed him or her.

“Man, she must have really pissed someone off.”

“Big time.” I peered across the darkening Pacific and reflected on that which had brought us to Hawaii: a desire to open our own P.I. agency.

The Third – Have You Heard?

Can you Hula like Hilo Hattie is free on the third promo day!

It’s Linda again today (Rey’s on monk-seal volunteer duty today and JJ’s at the animal shelter).

In Hula, we’ve become official private investigators and established the Triple Threat Investigation Agency (the name, by the by, was Rey’s idea).

And we have our first official paying assignment: to discover the “secret” of an elderly millionaire’s young, pretty wife.

It seems clear-cut . . . until she’s found floating in the stunning sapphire waters of a deserted beach.  The three of us endeavor to uncover the killer amid a cast of curious characters and do uncover a few secrets, but not all belong to the deceased wife.  A few bodies fall at our feet, too.  What initially seemed a simple case evolves into a complicated one.

While piecing together the puzzle, we take a few detours—to the sordid and dodgy domains of drug pushers, informants, and gangs.  These folks are serious game players who play for serious keeps.

The Second has been Beckoned

The second day of the free Can You Hula like Hilo Hattie promotion has arrived—beckoned like a mound of banana-mango shave ice on a 90-degree day.

Hula marks our first official—paying—case as private investigators.  My best friend, Rey, and her cousin, JJ, have been hired to find out what a millionaire’s pretty, young wife is up to.  Unfortunately, before we discover what that is, she’s found swimming in the ocean . . . face down.

Our case takes us to a variety of places, some dingy, some dangerous.  We meet gang members, drug dealers, and a druggie (who we attempt to get back on the straight and narrow).  JJ also meets a dark and handsome stranger who fixates on her.

A few bodies cross our paths, too, and we scramble to piece together a rather bizarre puzzle.  It’s a wild ride, as Rey just said (with a slap to the back and a theatrical  wink), or madcap as JJ just threw out (with a thumb’s up).  <LOL>

Maybe you’d like to check out how our professional sleuthing skills develop?  What have you got to lose?  Not one penny . . . because it’s free.

Aloha Sunday.

Immersed in the First . . .

. . . day of the Can You Hula like Hilo Hattie promotion.  It’s free!

It’s Linda on post patrol for the duration of the Hula promo (which runs today through the 17th).

It’s our first official case as professional private investigators.  We even have our own agency on Oahu: The Triple Threat Investigation Agency.  It was Rey’s idea to become P.I.s, as was the name suggestion; given JJ and I rarely, if ever, win when it comes to Rey, we went with it (with rolls of the eyes and sighs).

The three of us have been hired to uncover the secret of an elderly millionaire’s pretty, young wife.  There’s a dark twist though: pretty, young wife is found dead in the waters of the Pacific.  And there’s a secret all right, one of many and not all hers.

As we’re collecting clues, we trip across a few bodies along the way . . . with a sundry of suspects to choose from.  There’s a crazy druggie, a weird drug dealer or two, and a crotchety gang member or three.  We do make some enemies, but we also form a few friendships.

What seems a straightforward task becomes anything but.  Thanks to a bizarre week in Connecticut, however, we’re used to dealing with murderers and quirky personalities.  And we have enough faith in our developing talents to persevere and solve this challenging case.  As Rey called it, it’s “one heckuva fun ride”.

Maybe you’d like to find out just how much fun?  Here are some Amazon links courtesy of our Boss:
