    Can I just say FINALLY It took me a year, various emails to the previous publisher of this book and a few distributors, as well as the author Mr Neil Plakcy himself, for me to finally be able to read and enjoy this book Granted, I only just read the e book version of it and haven t got the print one, but this is definitely better than nothing And as it turned out, this book was worth waiting and staying up all night to read it for.By now I m a fan of Kimo Kanapa aka and there is very little that this character does that will turn me off him And that includes the fact that he basically lost himself in a frenzy of dangerous sexual adventures due to a painful, not so clean break up with the man he d started dating in the third book, Mahu Fire, fireman Mike Riccardi The thing that I love most about these Mahu books is how Plakcy portrays Kimo s relationships with the men around him I love how imperfect his and Mike s relationship is, which was also one of the biggest appeals of the third book for me, and that imperfections come in spades in this fourth book I also love the subsequent admission by Kimo himself that he often got himself led astray by his dick, so to speak, because it further emphasizes Kimo s human ness as a character and instead of turning me off him, I feel like I admire him better for being able to recognize that problem.And Mike ...

    Neil Plakcy has created a distinctive hero in Kimo Kanapa aka, noble and flawed, searching for himself while also trying to solve the mystery of a deadly fire at a retail strip his father used to own Who is behind the blaze Is it an insurance scam, or a cover up for something far darker Kimo s investigation is further complicated by the appearance of fire investigator Mike Riccardi, Kimo s ex boyfriend Their relationship ended when Mike exacerbated his refusal to come out of the closet by cheating on Kimo while at a conference on the mainland, sending Kimo into a self destructive spiral even though he pulled the plug.MAHU VICE is a very enjoyable book from a mystery standpoint, with several twists and interesting reveals Plakcy has crafted a good storyline as we hunt the true villain alongside Kimo, but it s in his characters, along with the way he textures the tale with numerous, interesting aspects of Hawaiian life, where Plakcy s storytelling shines brightest Kimo is surrounded by a cast of memorable and well drawn characters, from his ex boyfriend Mike to current police partner Ray, his brothers, his highly entertaining friend Gunter, and several other acquaintances who crop up during the investigation In each case the character feels authentic and real, not mere window dressing Plakcy has a knack for evoking the conflicts we can all have within us as people, the inconsistencies and contradictions He s not afraid...

    3.5 STARS As we open Mahu Vice, we find detective Kimo in a deep personal funk He s separated from hunky fireman, Mike Riccardi It seems Mike wanted to remain in the closet, not out to his parents or at work, and as a consequence they had stopped going out together spending most of their times in their apartment Also, Mike when he was at a convention cheated on Kimo Kimo didn t realize this until he woke up one morning with the burning sensation of gonorhea After all this, Kimo broke things off with Mike without a discussion Kimo feels guilty about the break up, because he thinks he may have overreacted Huh Well he didn t trash Mike s car, Out him at work or throw all his clothes in the street He simply walked away from a man who didn t want to be seen with him in public, who cheated on him having unsafe sex and gave him an STD What I would call a perfectly sensible decision, breaking things off, is apparently an overreaction in Kimo s mind Kimo s guilt leads to him spiraling out of control having punishing sex with everyone on the island Well not really It just seems that way All that however, is just background Kimo has a murder to investigate, and a fire is involved This reunites him with arson investigator former lover Mike Besides trying to...

    Wonderful combination of family, friendship, romance, and murder investigation I find myself being engrossed with the fourth book of Mahu series Somewhere along book 3, Kimo finds his way to my heart, better than the first two books Maybe because the insertion of romance with that fireman, Mike Riccardi I was a bit surprised when the book opened with Kimo informing us readers that him and Mike had broken up after only six months of relationship Then, I got excited Why Because the blurb implies that Kimo and Mike are finding their way together again I m ALWAYS excited for that I love stories about ex es or the one that got away because second chance is amazing I like Mike, the first time he appeared in book 3 I think he fits Kimo well, EVEN if I m not a fan of his mustache yes, NOT a fan of Tom Selleck here p.Aside from the romance, I also enjoy Kimo s interaction with his brother...

    This is the fourth installment of the Mahu series although there is a book of short stories called Mahu Men which takes place between Mahu Surfer and Mahu Vice This was a hard book to start When I read through the first few paragraphs I was in shock Kimo and Mike had split up WHAT Then something horrible happens the very first building Kimo s father ever built on his own has burned down and arson is discovered Now Kimo must work with Fire Inspector and ex boyfriend Mike Riccardi to find out who set the fire and why.In typical Plakcy formula, the plot thickens and twists throughout the book, as does the relationship between Kimo and Mike While both of the men have their issues and they are not necessarily easy ones to deal with , they still have to work together but there is a wall of tension, anger, hurt, and humiliation between them Even though I was heartbroken to find out they had split up, I couldn t put the book down as I read chapter after chapter into the...

    4.5 stars rounded upThis is the fourth book in this very good gay mystery series about police officer Kimo Kanapa aka It opens some 18 months or so after the previous book, with Kimo s relationship with fire officer Mike Riccardi having broken down around a year before and Kimo is not in a good place When a series of murder arson attacks occur the pair find themselves working together to try solve the crime which involves prostitution and trafficking and for Kimo is yet again a little to close to home as his personal life becomes tangled up with the case.As always there is a real sense of place in these books, from the geographical references to the Hawaiian music details given throughout There is a great cast of ...

    First book I read in the Mahu series and it was good I am a romance addict and this book is mystery than romance, but I was totally engrossed in Kimo s investigation, in Kimo s life I found him interesting, I like his voice, and I could listen to him ramble and express his regrets about his past mistakes for a long time He is the kind of flawed character I like, the kind that is self aware and can atone for his faults He is also funny and kind of normal, he feels real.Mike, Kimo s love interest, is a character I did not connect to I found him immature and kind of fade But I guess Kimo has good reason to love him and I would probably learn them if I read the other books in the series I liked reading about all these g...
