The Waimea Two-Step – The Noelani Lee Mysteries Book 4
An unexpected visit by her sister leads Hawaiian private eye Noelani Lee to investigate the unsolved murder of an environmental activist in the Big Island town of Waimea—in a case fraught with deep-seated mysteries and long-held grudges that could destroy a legendary ranching family’s storied reputation.
As she retraces the dead woman’s undercover investigation into rumors of genetically-modified “super cattle” roaming the fabled Carswell Ranch, Noelani must lasso a herd of secrets involving the ranch’s influential owner and his wife; their prodigal son and daughter-in-law; a transgendered artist; the rugby-playing ranch manager; and an ex-con who’s bent on corralling a slew of loose ends.
To find the killer, Noelani will have to stay tall in the saddle and keep a tight grip on the reins as she rides a trail of adventure that could shake the town of Waimea down to the soles of its big, pointy boots.
About Tom Bradley Jr. (Las Vegas, Nevada Author)
Legend has it that Tom Bradley Jr. began his writing career on his second birthday, when he used cake icing to scribe something illegible on his high chair. He’s been doing it ever since.
After high school, the native Pennsylvanian enlisted in the U.S. Navy with the goal of becoming a journalist. Seven years later, he went to work for community and daily newspapers in San Diego County and, a few years afterward, launched a second career in public relations, first in Las Vegas, then in San Antonio, then back in Las Vegas. Wow. Guy can’t hold down a job.
Along the way he picked up a B.A. in Communications from National University in San Diego, and a M.A. in Strategic Communication and Leadership from Seton Hall University in South Orange, N.J. Both are sources of pride for Tom, and of embarrassment for the respective institutions of higher learning.
When he’s not fantasizing about retiring and opening a beachside bar in Costa Rica, Tom lives a real suburban existence—complete with a pool and a fridge full of beer—in Henderson, Nevada, with his wife, Donna; and a basset hound named Molli.
