What others are saying about The Splintered Paddle.

Bill Crider and Reavis Z. Wortham were kind enough to read The Splintered Paddle and give me their comments. Thanks Bill. Thanks Reavis.

Mark Troy's The Splintered Paddle is a riveting novel of vengeance in the Aloha State.  Clean, hard-edged prose, a complex plot, and some carefully planted surprises.  Ava Rome is a tough private-eye with a difference.  Check it out.
Bill Crider, author of Too Late To Die.

What a ride! Robert B. Parker’s legacy lives on with Mark Troy’s Ava Rome mystery, The Splintered Paddle.

Splintered Paddle is a one-sitting read that crackles with energy and sparkles with Hawaiian personality. Troy’s characters are beautifully sketched and his dialogue is rich with the language of the island people who, despite today’s modern way of life, still hold true to the customs of their ancestors. When you finish, you’ll say mahalo for such a fast-paced, terrific read.
— Reavis Z. Wortham, author of The Right Side Of Wrong
