The Surfing Detective Mysteries
Aloha & welcome to !

You’ve come to the right place to learn about the Surfing Detective™ Mystery Series and to order Surfing Detective™ books and gear. Here’s a quick overview.

Surfing Detective Kai Cooke conducts confidential investigations on all islands in the Hawaiian chain—when he manages to pull himself away from his longboard.drop

Surfing Detective Series: In Murder on Moloka‘i Kai takes on a notorious trust that stops at nothing to carve a resort out of conservation land sacred to Hawaiians.  In Wipeout! & Hanging Ten in Paris he investigates two surfers lost in separate incidents half way around the world. In Kula he tracks the missing Golden Retriever—a famous surfing dog—of a shadowy radio pitchman. And in Murder at Volcano House(coming soon) he looks into the death of a man boiled alive in a volcanic steam vent on the Big Island.  Each book is available in both paperback and Kindle editions (Order Books).

Helping Kai, a cast of Ongoing Characters reflects the diverse population of the Hawaiian Islands: Mrs. Fujiyama rents Kai office space above her flower lei shop; Tommy Woo is Kai’s eccentric attorney who’d rather be playing jazz piano; Cousin Alika Keahola taught Kai everything he knows about surfing . . . .
