    1. At the heart of this mystery novel is a despicable, self-centered, duplicitous, mendacious, conniving and greedy family, and yet they are better, though only marginally, than the antagonist of the tale, around whose murder the plot revolves. The author does an admirable job at characterization, is actually too good at it since his exploration of their natures leaves the reader if not hating them all, then holding them in contempt.

    3. pretty much a damsel in distress--very different from Patrick Quentin's/Quentin Patrick's other, more noir-ish books. Young woman returns to Hawaii to prevent her young cousin's marriage to a horrible rake. Rake is killed, and every single person in the story lies to the police and each other. A totally "least likely person" for the murderer, but once can--just barely--accept it.
