From the Booking Desk:

Catching up with Neil Plakcy at the various crime fiction conventions each year is always a delight. When he told me at Malice Domestic this year that he would be releasing the thirteenth book in his Mahu Investigations series featuring fan favorite, Kimo Kanapa’aka, I immediately offered to host the cover reveal for the novel. Today is that day! Let’s take a look at the cover and jacket copy for The Virgin Homicides.

Jacket Copy:

Two Dead Women. Will Kimo’s Niece be Next?

The latest Honolulu homicides in the long-running Mahu Investigations series are perplexing, even to a seasoned detective like Kimo Kanapa’aka.

The two female victims, a young art college student and a seasoned HR executive, seem to have nothing in common. Yet as Kimo and his partner Ray Donne delve deeper into the investigation, they sense a connection between the two.

Navigating the murky waters of teen dating, fashion influencers, an experimental power company, and a group of frustrated young men, Kimo is determined to find the truth. But when his own family is threatened, the stakes become personal, and Kimo is forced to race against time to bring the killer to justice.
