Hawaiian Mystery Author Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl

NPR featured a story on a new (to me) Hawaiian mystery author, Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl. You can read and listen to the story here:

Victoria is a playwright and member of the faculty of English at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. She has written two mysteries.

Murder Casts a Shadow, 2008

Murder Leaves Its Mark, 2011

The books, published by the University of Hawaii Press, feature Ned Manusia, a playwright, and Mina Beckwith, a girl reporter for the Honolulu Bulletin. The books are set in pre-World War II Oahu and weave in both the territorial days and earlier Hawaiian history.
