Private dick Rex McBride was a heel. And he knew it.
But with the Sheila Mason case up for trial in one or two days, McBride needed a vacation. So when Vickers offered him twenty thousand to follow the beautiful Mrs. Sybil Nordstrom to Honolulu aboard the Honolulu Queen to hopefully recover the $2 million her husband stole from the Southern Counties Savings & Loan, McBride didn’t hesitate.
But on board, he uncovers Nordstrom’s partners, Chalice O’Conner, daughter of Nordstrom’s imprisoned partner, and finds himself caught between the ravishingly Mrs. Nordstrom and his jealous assistant Miss Kay Ford.
The voyage is anything but dull … an enigmatic Japanese baron, a missing steward presumed lost at sea, a murder, a suicide, and rumors of war with Japan.
Is it simply murder and greed, or will McBride unravel something darker when the Honolulu Queen reaches her destination in the middle of the Pacific?
AND SUDDEN DEATH, Cleve F. Adams’ hardboiled PI novel of greed, murder, and international intrigue leading to war in the Pacific.
First serialized as HOMICIDE HONOLULU BOUND in 1939.
