I've always been a fan of this series and not just because they're the only books I know of that are set in my hometown of Kennewick (one of the Tri-Cities). However, graphic novels can be really good or disappointing. This was a short prequel to the series. But I really thought Adam was way too small. Also, I'm not sure the artists had really been here. The only setting that looked correct was Jump Off Joe. But I was glad to read it. If only for the backstory...

A murder mystery taking place in modern day, but with the restrictions of a centuries old culture. It paces itself like an Agatha Christie novel and the road blocks to finding the truth about the murder are all founded in the restrictive customs of Islamic culture. For an outsider like myself it was fascinating to view the customs of another culture especially as it pertained to women. This murder-mystery will both please mystery fans with a plot that keeps you in the dark about who the murderer is until the twist at the end.

Another good book. Boy have I been lucky so far this month. This is the story of a Korean picture bride who comes to Hawaii thinking the streets are made of gold, and how she lives her life once she learns that it's not true. I picked the book up because it's the same author as Molokai, which I absolutely loved. This book was very good, and very enjoyable, but didn't have that same wow factor. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the stories, the way she became hawaiian. It was all very good. Just not quite great, though I can't explain what kept it out of 5 star category. I guess if nothing else, Molokai was an outstanding first book, and a hard one to follow up with anything. I would recommend this book as an enjoyable read, an interesting story, and an opportunity to learn about the patchwork quilt that was and is Hawaii. I'll definitely read it again.
