And Still Free on the Fifth . . .

. . . day of . . . The Connecticut Corpse Caper promotion.

It’s Rey today, hey!  It’s the last day to get Caper for free!

A week-long stay in a creepy colossal Connecticut mansion has us tripping over disappearing and reappearing corpses, hearing weird [scary] sounds from behind walls, and walking down shadowy hidden passageways.  Why?  Because seven quirky inheritors have gathered to collect their share of the money that wacky Aunt Mat left for them in her will.  And if dead bodies aren’t enough to make for hair-raising moments on a secluded storm-bound estate, how about a ghost named Fred?

There’s a clause in the will: if a guest leaves early, his or her share will be divided among those remaining.  The first one to leave—permanently—dies just hours after arriving.

Cousin JJ and my BFF Linda and I pull on amateur sleuth caps and determine to solve the mystifying murders.  We don’t do too badly, either.  Our “results” result (he-he) in the three of us opening the Triple Threat Investigation Agency and becoming professional private eyes.

Free on the Fourth . . .

. . . day of the free promotion for The Connecticut Corpse Caper.

You have Linda today and I’m here to tell you a little about our first sleuthing “adventure”, before we became official private investigators and proud owners of the Triple Threat Investigation Agency.

Caper has the three of us at Rey and JJ’s eccentric aunt’s haunted mansion for a week-long “collect your inheritance” event with a few other guests.  Yes, it’s truly haunted, but that’s nothing in comparison to the crazy goings-on . . . and multiple murders.  Is someone hoping that everyone dies so that the inheritance pot contains all shares?  That would be rather obvious, but as JJ likes to say, never say never.

Things go bump in the night, as do we when we saunter down dark/dank hidden passageways.  Creepy sounds resound—and hair-raising oddities found—throughout the eerie place. Who in the cast of curious characters is the culprit?  We endeavor to find out, hoping we don’t end up victims as we discover a few unsettling secrets.

If you’d like to check us out—and as Rey pointed out, it’s free so whaddya have to lose?—please check us out at . . .

Us Three, Still Free

It’s Linda posting today to let you know that the adventures of us three solving our first unofficial case is still free!  The Connecticut Corpse Caper shares how my BFF, Rey, and her cousin, JJ, and I track down a crazed killer.

It begins with a week-long stay at Rey and JJ’s eccentric (wacky, if you ask me) Aunt Mat’s haunted mansion.  Several guests must remain there for a full week to collect their portion of the inheritance; if anyone departs early, they forfeit the money and it goes back into the pot.

Not long after arrival, someone passes, and it’s not courtesy of natural causes.  Within a few hours, another guest departs, not the mansion but this earthly plain.  We’re all on edge, which goes without saying, and it’s not because we’re stuck in a creepy haunted mansion with a homicidal maniac on the loose.

The three of us become amateur detectives—Nancy Drews, as JJ’s boyfriend calls us (I’d prefer Sherlock Holmes, but whatever).  Hidden passageways, a resident ghost, weird sounds and happenings keep us on our toes, and—despite the odds, accusations and finger-pointing—we manage to figure out what’s what and who’s who.  Yes, I’m being cryptic, but I’m hoping I’m enticing you to read how the Triple Threat Investigation Agency came to be.

If I’ve succeeded, please check us out at . . .

We’re . . . Free

. . . The Connecticut Corpse Caper is, actually.  Hi, it’s JJ today.

Today, through May 12th, you can get our first unofficial “case” for free.

In Corpse, my cousin Rey and I meet up again (we’d not seen each other in years) at a week-long stay at our eccentric Aunt Mat’s haunted antebellum mansion.  Linda, Rey’s BFF, is along for the ride, as is my beau, Adwin.

We, with a few other guests, have to stay the seven-day course; if anyone leaves early, his/her portion of the inheritance is put into the pot for the others to share.  Someone bows out—permanently—not a few hours after arrival.  Soon, more guests drop.

It’s creepy enough staying in the old eerie mansion with weird sounds and dark winding hidden passageways, a resident ghost and bizarre happenings, but a nasty storm is rapidly approaching, threatening to take down power lines.  Before there are more victims, we don amateur sleuthing caps and determine to find the killer.

It’s so Good . . . to be Free

. . . free as in no $ required.  He-he.  It’s Rey today, hey.  The Connecticut Corpse Caper is gratis today through May 12th.  A real deal.

For those not in the know, Caper launched the Triple Threat Investigation Agency and our P.I. careers.  It was our first unofficial case, and JJ, Linda and I did pretty good.

The three of us have to spend a week at our wacky aunt’s haunted mansion with some other [weird] guests.  If anyone leaves before that week is over, they forfeit their portion of the inheritance . . . which goes into the pot for the others (those left alive, er, remaining) to share.  The first night, someone dies—and not of natural causes, either. And, before anyone can say “ghost” ten times, a few more bodies fall.

Maybe you’d like to check it out (we’d love it if you did) . . .

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?

Feel free (he-he) to check out the free (he-he) promotion at:

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. 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?

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.

If you’d like to find out how we fare, please check us out at:

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”.
