Cry Ohana by Rosemary and Larry Mild Slated for National Release on October 1
BALTIMORE, MD. â€“ Cry Ohana, the latest novel by husband-and-wife mystery writers Rosemary and Larry Mild, will be released on October 1, 2010.
Hank Pualoa makes the worst mistake imaginable when he drives drunk and causes an accident that kills his beautiful wife and tears apart his Hawaiian family, ohana. Forced to leave his Hawaii homeland in shame, Hank leaves his two young children, daughter Leilani, and son Kekoa, with their grandmother. The children thrive under their grandmotherâ€™s careâ€”until 12-year-old Kekoa witnesses the murder of his uncle.
As the only witness to this gruesome crime, Kekoa is in grave danger. Stalked by the murderer who plots to kill him, Kekoa faces no choice but to flee the only home and family he has ever known.
Plunged into a hand-to-mouth existence on the streets of Chinatown, Kekoa is forced to grow up way too fast. As if surviving day-to-day werenâ€™t hard enough, he faces an even bigger and deadlier challenge: outrunning the murderer who tracks his every move.
When he is hired as a bakerâ€™s assistant, Kekoa attempts to return to the home he once knew. But heâ€™s too late: his grandmother has passed away, and he has lost his sisterâ€”againâ€”to a foster family.
As he struggles to outrun the killerâ€™s repeated attempts on his life, Kekoa never loses sight of his desire to find Leilani and reclaim the family he has left. But danger is lurking at every turnâ€”from a Filipino wedding to a Maui resort; from a festive Chinese New Year celebration to the bakery where he works.
With the help of a tough and tenacious investigator and a shadowy stranger, Kekoa manages to stay one step ahead of the murderer. But when the killerâ€™s greedy and unscrupulous plans start to spiral out of control, he will ratchet up his efforts to ensure Kekoaâ€™s silence once and for all.
Can Kekoa find a new beginning with the family he lost? Or will the killer catch up to him first?
A high-action story of adventure and suspense, Cry Ohana is a mesmerizing tale about family, redemption, hope and justice. Brimming with local color and a setting to die for, Cry Ohana charms with its unforgettable cast of characters and lively, spirited plot.
