Product Details


Praise for Bones of Hilo:
“A compelling book, filled with lots of Hawaiian details and intrigue.”
—Mystery and Suspense Magazine

“The best mysteries draw you in with plot and suspense, and stay with you through their vivid characters and the new cultures, eras, and corners of the world they open to you. As you begin Bones of Hilo, the authorities are reeling from the implications of an extraordinary murder. When you reach the end, you’ve been immersed in their investigations—but have also learned about revenge versus forgiveness, loyalty versus betrayal, the parts of history that are known versus those that are repressed, and the ever-changing contours of race. This is a book that will stay with you.
—James Fallows, bestselling co-author of Our Towns

“Fast-paced and smart, Bones of Hilo is both alluring and dark—much like its Big Island setting. By diving far beneath the glossy shimmer meant for tourists, Eric Redman has surfaced with a fantastic tale of the greed and passion that have written Hawaii’s history, and which will drive its destiny.” 
—Jonathan Moore, Edgar and Hammett Award-nominated author of Blood Relations

In Bones of Hilo, Ric Redman does for Hawaii’s beauty and culture what Tony Hillerman did for the Southwest and the Navajo. Redman creates unique and interesting characters, all the while spinning out a delicious puzzle that, in the tradition of all great mystery writers, keeps the reader guessing right up to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this fine detective novel.”
—Karl Marlantes, bestselling author of Matterhorn and Deep River

“Lush, smart and adult, this is crime fiction of a very high order.”
—Charles Ardai, award-winning author of Fifty-to-One

“Combine a deep dive into the history of Hawiian culture with a taut mystery, an anguished, ethnically-fraught love story and clever police procedural, and you have it all with Bones of Hilo.”
—Chris Knopf, award-winning author of the Sam Acquillo Hamptons mysteries

“In Bones of Hilo, Eric Redman introduces a compelling new detective protagonist in Kawika Wong. The vibrant and carefully drawn Big Island Hawaiian backdrop, clever and intricate plot, and cast of memorable characters—including the complicated and plucky Wong—make it a must-read!”
—Sarah Stewart Taylor, author of The Mountains Wild 

“Hard to put down — more plot twists than a whole library of Sherlock Holmes.” 
—Tim Zagat, co-founder of Zagat Surveys
