Publisher Description

From Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Bill Pronzini comes this historical mystery, The Paradise Affair.

Quincannon’s pursuit of two con men who have absconded to Hawaii with a considerable sum of his employer’s assets dovetails nicely with Sabina’s vision of a second honeymoon. But neither is wont to stay out of trouble, and Sabina inadvertently becomes involved in a locked room murder involving a dying message in Honolulu.

“Narrators Erica Sullivan and Kevin Kenerly capture 1890s San Francisco and…effectively depict the Hawaiian locale, food, words, and extremes of weather. Most entertaining is Kenerly’s portrayal of a local private investigator whose shrewd skills and ability to drink massive amounts of beer impress even Quincannon and add to a fun listen.”
