Aloha, Lady Blue

November 9th, 2012

I've known Charley Memminger for years as a prolific newspaper columnist and friendly colleague, and now he's unveiling a new book entitled Aloha, Lady Blue. The book, with a foreword by game show personality Pat Sajak, is a triller set in the tropics that combines unusual characters with a riveting mystery.

The book is listed for pre-sale now on which describes the plot as: The main character, Stryker McBride, lives on a $300,000 houseboat at a small yacht club. The former crime reporter has been keeping a low profile since being shot by a cop while investigating police corruption. But when Stryker receives a phone call from a beautiful former high school classmate, he’s drawn back into society to look into the death of the woman's grandfather. Soon, Stryker's investigation leads him to a deadly secret buried deep in the heart of Hawaii. Vivid and exhilarating, you can almost hear the pounding of the surf and catch the scent of plumeria. Exotic women and glorious scenery provide the backdrop for a novel that is as vibrant as its locale.

It's a two-book deal with St. Martin's Press includes a sequel that Memminger is working on now; Working title: A Deadly Kona-Colored Wind.

Aloha, Lady Blue is due to be released on Jan. 8, 2013.
