ABOUT KAY HADASHI NOVELS
Here’s something new!
Amazon now has a program known as Kindle Vella, stories that can be read one episode at a time. The first three episodes are free, and then tokens are bought by the reader to purchase further episodes. It’s an interesting system, that if you don’t like the story after the first three episodes, you can quit reading and you’re not out anything.
My first offering is titled “The Cairo Juice Seller”, the story of an American expat living in Cairo, Egypt, and the trouble he finds when navigating the culture and politics of the land of his birth. Of course, Brad isn’t entirely innocent, and is the source of most of his problems. But when a man shows up on his doorstep with a strange message, and is later found dead, Brad can’t quite leave it alone. He chases his tail, and a few others, from one end of Cairo to the other in this not-so-cozy suspense mystery.
Gina Santoro is a young Clevelander, and while still in police training, finds a little too much trouble while out on patrol one night. Making the tough decision to step away from the family trade of police work, she eventually finds herself in Honolulu working in the landscape business. But trouble catches up to her in the form of a dead body on her front porch one morning. That catapults Gina into a police investigation of her new family, new friends, and even a new enemy or two!
There are better things to do in Hawaii on a sunny day than go on a free skydiving trip. Just ask Gina Santoro while she parachutes into a murder mystery she’ll never forget! Whether it was horrible accident, death by misadventure, or an act of murder, Gina gets a bird’s eye view when a man falls past her, only to perform a world-class belly flop in the ocean from 5000 feet. While police detectives posture, and FBI agents chase their tails, Gina and her sister take the investigation by the horns. Following leads from one end of Honolulu to the other, they discover how complicated a teenaged girl’s life can be while on the run from the government. Gina has a house full of fun when her sister comes for a visit, a runaway moves into a closet, and a glamorous detective asks unanswerable questions. And let’s not forget the crying baby!
This new series features Maile Spencer, a young tour guide who finds more trouble than tips when giving tours of her hometown of Honolulu. Get started with AWOL at Ala Moana today!
