Editorial Reviews


"There are certain writers who can make the most of ugliness in paradise. R. Barri Flowers is among the best of them, and Murder on Kaanapali Beach is among the best of his tales. This one deserves to be at the top of your must read list." -- John Lutz, Edgar winning, bestselling mystery author

"When a woman is killed on Maui's Kaanapali Beach, homicide investigator and composite sketch artist Leila Kahana is faced with a real conundrum.  Is the dead woman yet another victim of the Zip Line Killer, or is a copycat at work?  R. Barri Flowers gives readers a fine procedural along with appealing characters and great local color.  Grab this book for your next fictional trip to Hawaii.  You'll be glad you did."  -- Bill Crider, Edgar winner and bestselling crime writer

"A suspenseful puzzle at its core. Murder on Kaanapali Beach (Book 2 in the Leila Kahana Mysteries series) is an engaging read masterfully crafted with all the twists and turns of modern day police procedurals. R. Barri Flowers weaves a riveting crime tale set in Hawaii oozing with authenticity, grit and drama." -- Kim Cresswell, award-winning and bestselling author of the Whitney Steel series

"A top flight police procedural and a must read for all fans of suspense. R. Barri Flowers masterfully weaves two murder investigations together while trying to bring down a serial killer known as the Zip Line Killer. The contrast of seamy crime to the beautiful paradise setting adds to the gripping tension. Flowers does for the beach what Benchley did for the ocean." -- Joe Moore, #1 Amazon and international bestselling co-author of
The Tomb

"A police procedural with a complex plot, told from multiple viewpoints. The editing is very thorough. The reader gets the added benefit of a virtual vacation on Maui." -- Laurie Hanan, Hawaii mystery author

From the Author

Aloha! As one of my followers, I wanted to let you know about the much anticipated release of my Leila Kahana police procedural and mystery novel, MURDER ON KAANAPALI BEACH.
It is the sequel to my bestselling mystery, 
MURDER IN MAUI, and is sure to please my fans and lovers of Hawaii crime fiction.
In the latest Leila Kahana mystery, Detective Sergeant Leila Kahana and new partner, Jonny Chung, investigate the murder of a college instructor on Maui's famed Kaanapali Beach.
The victim was strangled, leaving Leila to believe that it may be the work of a serial killer, dubbed the "Zip Line Killer", who has murdered several young women on the island in the past year.
But is it a copycat killer? Or could the murder be linked to another recent one, where a businessman was gunned down in front of his home?
Find out for yourself as Leila and the Homicide Squad investigate with all the twists and turns of modern day police procedurals, with a shocking conclusion.
R. Barri Flowers
