Treachery Times Two by Robert McCaw is book four in the Koa Kane Hawaiian Mystery series. Released earlier this year, it is a tightly woven story that takes place in an exotic locale, and it is filled with plenty of danger and drama. Read on for more details.
Secret military weapons, saboteurs, a volcanic eruption—and a probe of Chief Detective Koa Kane’s criminal past
On Hawaii Island, a volcanic earthquake disrupts an abandoned cemetery—unearthing the body of a woman mutilated by her killer to conceal her identity.
The search for her identity leads Hilo Hawaii’s Chief Detective Koa Kane to a mysterious defense contractor with a politically connected board of directors. Defying his chief of police, Koa pursues the killer, only to become entangled in an FBI espionage investigation of Deimos, a powerful secret military weapon. Is the FBI telling all it knows—or does it, too, have a duplicitous agenda?
At the same time, Koa—a cop who thirty years earlier killed his father’s nemesis and covered up the murder—faces exposure by the dead man’s grandson. Koa is forced to investigate his own homicide, and step by step, his cover-up unravels until another man is falsely accused.
Can Koa stand by and let an innocent man pay for his crime?
A crime novel perfect for fans of Michael Connelly and James Lee Burke
While all the novels in the Koa Kane Hawaiian Mystery Series stand on their own and can be read in any order, the publication sequence is:
Death of a Messenger
Off the Grid
Fire and Vengeance
Treachery Times Two
I love it when a mystery or thriller takes place in a beautiful location. Many of Stuart Woods’ books are set in places where the water is blue, and the sunshine is plentiful. So, I was happy to dive into Treachery Times Two, which emanates from Hawaii. For long-time readers, you’ll know that Hawaii is where my wife and I went for our honeymoon. Location aside, stories are what matter, and this one is a top-tier tale. Receiving rave reviews from authors and readers alike, Treachery Times Two has excellent pacing, inspired writing, and substantive character development. I felt invested in the welfare of the protagonist and was fully immersed in the story as it unfolded. For these reasons, and more, I recommend checking out Treachery Times Two. With the hot weather on the horizon, now’s the perfect time to escape into a book set in Hawaii.
