    This book is a quick read, taking place in some well-described locations on Oahu, Kauai and The Big Island. The main character is a likable detective who is working on two cases that conveniently overlap and lead to an easy resolution. I mostly enjoyed the book... However, I thought that there were a few problems. First of all, when the dialogue between Hawaiian characters lapses into local pidgin, it really slowed down my reading.

However, I thought that there were a few problems. First of all, when the dialogue between Hawaiian characters lapses into local pidgin, it really slowed down my reading. I had to slowly "translate" what they were talking about. This was only a minor irritation and I can appreciate that it shows local mannerisms, but it did bother me. I'm mentioning it here just to give others a heads up. Also, the supporting characters were fairly stereotypical. His girlfriend is so jealous that one lie is enough to cut off their relationship, the young girl in the lei shop downstairs has a big violent bully for a boyfriend, the other young girl in the story is a complete airhead and the murder victim's wife is an aging beauty queen who is married to a much older, richer man. I think the author could improve his future stories (this is a series.) if he invests more complexity into the people who surround his main character.

    This was a quick read and a decent mystery made even better because of the location. Having been to most of the places used as important settings for the story made this a fun book. I picked it up at the Volcano House Gift Shop on the Big Island--a great souvenir for a wonderful vacation. The best part--I would have liked this book even if I hadn't been to Hawaii!

    I chose this book for it's Hawaiian setting, but did not like the main character, or when the author chose to write in "pidgin." (No offense.) It seemed to me like he took his job as something to fill the time until he could go surfing again.

    This was a free book from Amazon via BookBub. It is #3 in the Surfing Detective mystery series by Chip Hughes an author who knows Hawaii, the setting of the series. I really enjoyed this mystery and had no trouble getting connected to the main character even though I haven't read the first 2 books. I've never been to Hawaii but the descriptions of the different islands were so good I felt like I was there. Kai, the detective, is very smart and likeable.

There is a bit of a love interest in Maile, but she plays a very small part in this book. I will read the earlier books to get the back story of that relationship. In fact her Golden Retriever, Kula, appears more than she does (very cool dog)! Some reviewers complained about not understanding the pidgin dialect of the native characters (and Kai lapses into it in their conversations). This did not hinder my understanding at all and gave the story verisimilitude. I look forward to reading more of this charming series.

    This is the kind of book you can sit back, enjoy, and just have fun with. It’s well written, with short scenes that come at you fast and move on to the next. There’s no sex, foul language, or on-camera violence. Surfing Detective Kai Cook heads to the Big Island where he has been hired to protect a client from none other than the Goddess Pele herself. When the client dies, Pele seems to be the prime murder suspect.

Hughes knows Hawaii, the people, and the culture. His use of Pidgin is authentic and not the least bit contrived. If you love the islands, you’ll feel right at home with this story. If Hawaiian culture feels foreign to you, give this book a shot anyway. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

    The surfing detective books not only provide an interesting and though-provoking story, but include inspirational glimpses of all the fine things that make Hawaii different from the rest of the world. This is a great detective story laid in paradise, with no end of different and interesting characters. Occasional lapses into dialect keep the reader amused and thinking.

    Several people get killed near the famous Volcano House on the big island of Hawaii, and it looks like they're all related to a geo-thermal company that had an ill-fated attempt to profit from the volcano's power. A local detective is hired to prevent what might be the next murder/death. The lead suspect? Pele, the hawaiian goddess of the volcano, exacting her revenge. Not a bad premise. Not badly executed. In all, a fairly entertaining book. Nothing exceptional, but well done.

    Good old fashioned murder mystery! Starting from the beautiful state of Hawaii, this story is a mini travelogue with 4 murders thrown in. Kia Cooke has several jobs on the books that you follow throughout the story. By the time you finish the book all are brought to conclusion very satisfactorily. Enjoy the visual descriptions as you follow along with the cases. The author has a way with local dialects.

    Enjoyable mystery - Kindle freebie through BookBub. This would be a great beach read, especially if the beach were in Hawaii! This is no. 5 in the "Surfing Detective" series, although the first one I've read. There were references to situations from past books, but the story held together even without having read them. I would definitely read more of this series. Enjoyable mystery - Kindle freebie through BookBub. This would be a great beach read, especially if the beach were in Hawaii!

    I enjoyed this mystery novel, which takes readers from O'ahu to the Big Island and Kauai. Did Pele cause the death of the victim or was there a more human motive? The surfing detective eventually puts the pieces together in a way that will lead me to pick up another in the series.

    The best parts of the book were the settings at Hawai'i Volcanoes Nat'l Park, Waikiki, and K'aua'i. It was a good prelude to next month's trip, except for the murders.

    A fun mystery, especially for visitors to Hawaii's Big Island, and Volcano House. Kai, the surfing detective, is at the center of multiple plot lines: the main plot: he's hired by a 40-something ex-beauty queen to shadow and protect her husband, and things go sideways; at the same time, Kai's working a case about a deadly drunk driving incident; and he's trying to win back his love interest; and when he can, he's protecting a young neighbor from an abusive ex-boyfriend.

The plots all tie together neatly and the outcome is no great surprise. But getting there is fun. I enjoyed revisiting the Big Island in author Chip Hughes spot-on narration of places I saw on a recent vacation there. And oh, this surfing detective does not just catch waves on his own. He also has a tandem board so he can surf with his dog.

Kama'aina (locals) warn tourists from taking lava rocks - the essence of Pele - home to the mainland. Kama'aina know that bad luck will follow the lava rock. The Park Service displays the rocks mailed back by tourists who have felt Pele's wrath. MURDER AT VOLCANO HOUSE brings Pele's wrath to a CEO who cut through a sacred forest. Kai Cooke, the Surfing Detective, is skeptical yet he encounters others who are believers, including the CEO's wife, an activist, and the desk clerk at Volcano House. The historic hotel is perched on the rim of Kilauea's caldera - Pele's home. Hughes delivers another action adventure for the Surfing Detective as Kai navigates through Hawaii's cultural history while trying to avoid Pele's wrath himself. I enjoyed Hughes sprinkling in the Hawaiian language, local slang, and a homage to the extraordinary landscape of the Big Island. Recommended read for those who appreciate Hawaii's culture heritage. I purchased a print copy of MURDER AT VOLCANO HOUSE for my reading pleasure.

I THINK HE SPENT WAY TO MUCH TIME DESCRIBING THE ISLANDS GREAT DETAIL. THE BOOK COULD DOUBLE AS A TRAVEL LOG WITH A TINY BIT OF A MURDER MYSTERY ENCLOSED. IT IS NOT A TERRIBLE READ IF LESS OF THE SIGHTS-SOUNDS-TASTE-FLORA AND FAUNA ETC. I KNOW I WOULD HAVE ENJOYED IT MORE.

    I liked this story and the lead Kai Cook is terrific. I just wish there were more full length novels. The investigator is a surfer and gets his best ideas while waiting on a wave. In this the 4th book in the series, he is asked by a wealthy man's wife to protect her husband while attending a funeral. He is paid well and flies to the big island to be near while the couple is waiting on the funeral.

    During a trip to the Big Island we ate dinner at the Volcano House and it was amazing. Later in the trip I saw this book and figured it would be a fun souvenir as it would point out landmarks from the area. It seemed like a local author and I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great writing style, fun and laid back. I loved the usage of the local dialect and how the culture was interwoven into the plot. A really creative storyline using the goddess Pele.

    Compared to the dark, brooding mysteries I have recently read, this one could be considered mystery-lite. The main character, Kai Cooke, is an interesting character, balancing his professional life with reconciling with the love of his life and pursuing his passion, surfing. The fun of the tale is that he must figure out how to prove that Pele did not kill a man. Since the book is set in Hawaii, we get a decent description of the islands.

    Likeable main character, easy dialogue, albeit the supporting characters may have been superficial, this is Hawaiian beach reading at its best. I was visiting the Big Island at the time, which is where a majority of the story takes place, so I appreciated the descriptions of the setting. I realize some reviewers disliked the main character devolving into Pidgin, but I thought it leant an air of credibility to the story.

    Hawaii good Very good book. Story is excellent. His use of the Hawaiian words and lodging great. I read another one by someone else and they had words wrong it was awful never finished it. His book is great, the story keeps you guessing and goes in directions you wouldn't expect. Works great. I had to stay up way past bedtime to finish it but worth it. You will never figure it out.
