When a violent death disrupts the monthly meeting of the Pua Kala Garden society, Professor Molly Barda has no intention of playing amateur detective. But Molly's not just a witness-the victim is Molly's house guest and grad-school frenemy. And Molly quickly finds to her dismay that her interest in the murder is more than just...academic. If you like Dorothy Parker, Sarah Caudwell, P.G. Wodehouse, or E.F. Benson's Mapp and Lucia stories, or are in the mood for a murder in Hawaii, you'll enjoy this tale of passion, pilferage, and petty politics in the middle of the Pacific.
