TOUR: WINGS IN THE DARK (A Jake and Laura Mystery #3) by Michael Murphy






Review: WINGS IN THE DARK by Michael Murphy (A Jake and Laura Mystery #3)

Prolific novelist Michael Murphy is also a research mavens, bringing past eras vividly to life. In this installment of his delightful Jake and Laura Mystery series, the dynamic couple enjoy a gorgeous tropical vacation in Hawaii. Remember, this is 1935, the height of the Great Depression, 6 years before Pearl Harbor, 2 years before pilot Amelia Earhart s disappearance. Speaking of Amelia, the female pioneer pilot is a great friend of Laura, and when she is accused of murder, well, who else to enlist but mystery writer and former Pinkerton detective Jake, and actress-wife Laura?

Witty and stylish in the classic Dashiell Hammett tradition, Michael Murphy’s latest high-flying Jake & Laura mystery features a Hawaiian honeymoon that’s interrupted when their friend Amelia Earhart is accused of murder.

Hawaii, 1935. Mystery novelist Jake Donovan and actress Laura Wilson are in gorgeous sun-soaked Hawaii, but their best-laid plans for canoodling on the beach are interrupted by a summons from famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart. It seems a local businessman has been gunned down next to her plane. In just days, the famous pilot intends to fly from Honolulu to Los Angeles, making aviation history over the Pacific. But now, without Jake and Laura’s help, Earhart’s flight might never take off. 

Trailing a killer, the newlyweds’ sleuthing leads to a jealous pilot, a cigar-chomping female officer of the “Royalist Militia,” and a notoriously disagreeable lieutenant colonel named Patton. With a sinister killer lurking in the shadows, it’s safe to say the honeymoon is over . . . and the danger has just begun.
