Product Description

Product Description

Edgar Rice Burroughs created the wildly popular Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, but the exploits of his heroes cannot rival the writer’s own explosive adventure, sparked by the tragic murder of an exotic young beauty on a moon-swept Honolulu beach.

The killing is written off as the tragic result of a lovers’ quarrel, but Burroughs suspects that the alluring half-Japanese singer was executed by espionage agents. It’s December 6, 1941. War with Japan is looming, and Burroughs has reason to suspect an attack on Oahu is imminent. Was the songstress silenced to prevent her from “singing” about certain sinister plans? As Burroughs and his son Hully search for clues and track down suspects, all signs point to the next day—Sunday—as the perfect time for a Japanese invasion. But the thought of such devastation raining down on paradise seems almost unbelievable….

Set against the catastrophic aerial strike that led the United States into another world war, The Pearl Harbor Murders effortlessly mixes hard-hitting action and exotic romance in this gripping untold chapter from our nation’s most tragic day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light read, but quick and enjoyable. 27 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This novel takes place from Dec 5 - 7, 1941 on Oahu, Hawaii. The main characters are Edgar Rice Burroughs and his son Hulburt (Hully), staying at the Niumalu guest houses on the edge of Waikiki. Nearby cabins were occupied by FBI agent Adam Sterling and German (spy) Otto Kuhn and his wife. Burroughs hears a scream from the beach and discovers the young band singer dead with the band leader leaning over her. The band leader is arrested, although he claims he had just discovered her and didn't kill her. Kuhn claims he watched the band leader murder the girl through his window. Burroughs and Hully decide to investigate (and work with Sterling) because they believe the band leader didn't do it. There are many suspects, and the amateurs worry about a possible Japanese attack, but the military bigwigs don't believe it is possible. Then the Japanese attack comes. The book makes the attack on Pearl Harbor come alive and takes the reader through Waikiki and the island of Oahu of the time, while the murder gets solved

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 18 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was an enjoyable read. The mystery was what attracted me to want to read it. The book was in the end was more about the attack on pearl harbour. Instead of being the back drop to the mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Part of a series of novels in the same vein 27 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although the format is predictable (murders set in specific locations in situations that are historically true), these are still very enjoyable light reading and entertaining, which I suppose is the whole point of the excercise. Thought the first one I read (set during the London Blitz) was probably the best, but I am continuing to read through the others as they are great fun.
