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 of the stylish and self-centered Melanie Polewski 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.
