Kauai Temptations: A McKenna Mystery (Volume 2)

We rated this book:


In the middle of a dark, wet, Pacific Northwest winter, a trip to warm, sunny Kauai could not sound better. If that isn’t possible, an engaging mystery set in that lovely locale isn’t a bad second choice.

Wilson McKenna is an apartment manager and part-time journalist, whose life has been turned upside down because someone has stolen his identity. In search of a new story and some revenge, McKenna decides to break the identify theft ring himself. A trip to Kauai and two dead bodies later, McKenna has seriously irritated both the local police and the bad guys. Just when McKenna starts having serious doubts about his abilities, he finds he can’t just walk away and fly home to Oahu.

Terry Ambrose has written a decent mystery. His bad guys are a bit predictable. However, what makes this story interesting is McKenna himself. He’s sort of the antithesis of Thomas Magnum. He’s a middle-aged guy who is aging less than gracefully and is quick with a smart-ass remark, at least in the safety of his own mind. Overall, not a bad read for a wet winter day.
