    One thought on “Aloha, Lady Blue: A Mystery”

    1. Charley Memminger's debut novel Aloha, Lady Blue has a vivid portrayal of Hawaii life and a keen understanding of the people who live there. His prose is very descriptive. The island people and criminals are portrayed convincingly.Channelling his inner John D. MacDonald, the famous author of the Travis McGee private eye novels, Memminger has also written a mystery. His private detective Stryker McBride, is a retired newspaperman. While investigating a story, a dirty cop shot McBride and his sour [...]

    2. Fans of Charley Memminger, Hawaii’s national-award-winning humor columnist (“Honolulu Lite”), will love his first novel, “Aloha, Lady Blue.” Although the intricately woven plot of this thriller will keep you turning the pages way past your bedtime through a series of bizarre and entertainingly crafted episodes, the author’s funny streak will keep you smiling too. The elderly Chinese victim of the crime that Memminger’s hero, Stryker McBride, is trying to solve is called Wai Lo Fat. [...]

    3. For Travis McGee fans, the choice of reading this book is a no-brainer. Memminger is an award winning humorist whose columns I always enjoyed. This is his first in a series of riffs on John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee character. In the first few chapters, the pace seemed a bit herky-jerky. By the time one gets about a third of the way into it, it becomes hard to put it down. Be prepared to lose some sleep trying to find out what's going to happen next. Given my love of sea turtles I wasn't real [...]

    4. Aloha Lady Blue is a smart, funny mystery that introduces Stryker McBride, a kind of modern day Travis McGee living in Hawaii instead of Fl. It is very fitting that McBride, an unemployed ex-investigative reporter, lives on a houseboat that he has named The Travis McGee. I loved the dialogue, the story, the quirky characters and the exotic backdrop. Charley Memminger knows Hawaii and he knows how to keep you entertained from the first page to the last.

    5. 5.0 out of 5 stars Aloha, Lady Blue : A Mystery, February 18, 2013By Nanakulikane - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Aloha, Lady Blue: A Mystery (Kindle Edition)For those of us who live in Hawaii and know the phrase 'Ono Grindz' as that applies to food, this is the book version for locals. Memminger definitely hits all the sweet spots and then some, plus he takes the time to explain to haole's,(outsiders), things they would not know about the history, culture and kuliana that makes this pl [...]

    6. This was a great read! Having read most all of the Travis McGee series by John D.MacDonald I was so thrilled to find this book on my local library's new book shelf. Set in Hawaii and full of all kinds of Hawaiian history and lore this book was a interesting read for me and makes me want to visit the islands. I love that his land locked house boat is named the Travis McGee and I did pick up on the Authors crafty way of weaving the titles of 2 of Travis McGee novels into his writing, most notably [...]

    7. As this series debut begins, Stryker McBride (an ex-reporter on the police beat) is recovering from an injury incurred while on the job. He’s living in a houseboat moored on dry land while he waits for a spot on a marina pier to open up. His job as security guard at the marina is mainly executed by his two dogs, so he spends most of his time drinking in the marina bar or on his boat. A call comes in from Amber, a beautiful woman he went to school with, asking him to look into the death of her [...]

    8. Reviewers before me hit the nail on the head with their insightful feedback - and for the most part, I echo their sentiments. This is a promising debut featuring former reporter Stryker McBride who acts as unofficial security guard for the local marina where he lives on his boat. The Hawaiian locales are beautifully realized and his affection for the late John D MacDonald is evident throughout. The dialogue is crisp and the story moves forward at a good pace.Having said that, there were two aspe [...]

    9. I'm a great lover of books that evoke a sense of place. While I've never been to Hawaii, I can imagine that those who have - and who enjoy mysteries - would really love this book. It benefits from a knowledge of the geography of Oahu, so I ended up looking at an online map while reading this to get a sense of where it all took place. The story will appeal to those who love the Travis McGee novels of John MacDonald - the hero's boat is even named the Travis McGee and the story is an homage to tho [...]

    10. Hawaiian setting, a houseboat named the Travis MdGee and the gods (two lovable guard dogs reminiscent of magnum pi's zeus and apollo, but on the side of our hero) row in a hero with that perfect blend of tough guy and knight in shining (and surfing) armor, and, what's not to love about this first in a series featuring stryker mcbride? A few too many gangsters for my liking, and a shade too long to keep the tension tight, but mcbride and the islands are so nice to hang out with, i didn't mind at [...]

    11. The countdown to Hawaii is on!!I only read this novel because of my upcoming trip to Hawaii. The novel takes place on Oahu, so it was nice to read about the major sites (Diamond Head, Waikki beach) and getting a feel for the island way of live. Unfortunately the mystery didn't hold up. The main character didn't solve anything. He just got bounced around from person to person who just gave him information. The whole thing felt very unrealistic. There was also some history of Hawaii and Chinese Ha [...]

    12. A sprightly mystery with a Hawaii setting by a former humor columnist for the now defunct Honolulu Star Bulletin. He dips into the waters of Carl Hiaasen and John D. MacDonald, deploying characters from Hawaii's multicultural mix: Chinese, Hawaiian, and Caucasian. There are beautiful women, well-spoken henchmen, dogs named for Hawaiian gods. Not the best detective novel on Hawaii I've read, but entertaining enough. Should please those who enjoy stories set on houseboats and hints of long-ago bur [...]

    13. I was hoping for more Kinky Friedman/Robert P Parker (humor/dialogue/action) and less lengthy history/geography lessons. Don't get me wrong. I learned a lot about the ethnicity, crime, corruption, flora and fauna of Oahu in this first book of Memminger's new Hawaiian mystery series. Former investigative reporter turned boat/surf bum with money is a Hawaian Travis McGee who needs to talk more and slip island information to his readers in ways not so "textbooklike". Read this series with a state m [...]

    14. Excellent, fast-paced, and touched with humor, this new series explores the seedy side of Hawaii, with good detail on crime syndicates and the intricacies of the majority cultural groups that make this state so very different. I really look forward to more from the author.

    15. I started this book before I left for a weeks vacation on Oahu. Even though it is a work of fiction, I was happy that it talked about so many of the places on the island in addition to about the people that live there. It is a good mystery and I couldn't wait to finish it when I got home.

    16. I had the pleasure of interviewing Charley for my website. Inspiring stuff. Recommend to all new novelists. Guy never gave upehumorcolumnist/the-

    17. Debut mystery from this author, and already I'm anxious for more. Good story line, set in Hawaiikes me want to go even though the protagonist uis dealing with the really bad guys.

    18. Set in Hawaii, the best part of the book was the Hawaiian culture, names and traditions. Not a bad mystery.

    19. great references to Hawaiian culture. many allusions to other books. laugh-out-loud funny sometimes. good plot. enjoyed it more than it thought i would.

    20. I rather liked this book. While it is no great literature, it is a fun book, taking place in Hawaii with lots of local color and local history.Besides all the human characters, there are a couple of big dog; and to top it off, the author is using the royalties to support the Hawaiian Human Society. Nice little escapism and supporting a good cause; a win-win.

    21. This riveting new mystery series pays loving homage to legendary author John D. MacDonald. Stryker McBride is a former crime reporter who lives on a hugely expensive houseboat, “the Travis McGee.” When Stryker receives an unexpected SOS call from a sultry beauty queen, he agrees to look into the suspicious death of the woman’s grandfather. As Stryker investigates, he encounters a cast of characters as diverse as Hawaii itself, including Auntie Kealoha, a charming entertainer turned mobster [...]

    22. The novel’s protagonist, Stryker McBride, sports a bad porn name, lives on a houseboat circa Miami Vice Don Johnson, is far too sexually successful (one word, threesome), and lives in Hawaii (Magnum, P.I. marathon, anyone?). Even with a tired setup like this, Memminger creates a spirited detecto story. McBride is an ex-journalist living at the Bayview Yacht Club on Oahu with his two German Shepherds. He’s recovering from an assault that forced him into retirement and semi-seclusion; the same [...]

    23. This book has been compared to the Travis McGee novels of John McDonald, but outside of the main character's boat being named Travis McGee I don't see the comparison. The Travis McGee series was excellent with the main character being the quintessential 1960's cool guy. Stryker McBride the main character of Aloha Lady Blue is almost the complete opposite. If yow were to take one part Randy Wayne White, one part James W Hall, a very small piece of Tim Dorsey, and added Carl Hiaasen, blended them [...]

    24. Somewhat interesting read, did keep me reading, though I considered not finishing it. Some of the bad guys were a bit over the top, and too many of them. Complex implausible plot. Wish had a spell check that did something other than tell you that a word is spelled wrong, also gave you some suggestions. Also wish it had printing options, like be able to print out only one author so you could easily find books that you hadn't read by that author.Back to the story, seemed to be some words left out [...]

    25. Clearly this book is the start of a new series. It's an unabashed homage to the Travis McGee stories, but the story is set in present day Hawaii. It's got potential. Stryker McBride, his two guard dogs named after Hawaiian gods, his cop/surfer buddy, and love interest, Dr. Melba McCall make a good crew for righting injustices. I hope the next story cuts back on the details of which road goes by which village or shopping center, TMI. Soon some surfer, gorgeous woman, or member of the Bay View Yac [...]

    26. A detective novel that takes place on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii. Someone who had lived in Hawaii would have loved all the references to streets, bays, suburbs, hotels, and vegetation that are brought up in this book. I liked the book, but, it is scattered with earthy language. I listened to this book by recommendation of Johnny Kikkert. It was very entertaining with the exception of hearing those words in my ears. The plot was well written and entertaining. It sort of reminded me of the TV Sh [...]

    27. Aloha, Lady Blue was like a fresh warm tropical wind read during a polar cold week in Nebraska. Memminger's wonderful character Stryker McBride and Hawaii reminds me of Doc White in Randy White's Sanibel Island mysteries. Very good debut - please Charley, keep Stryker going!!!! Rivals the best in the field. I belong to an International Intrigue Book Club that loves mystery thrillers that involve you in the culture of the area. Aloha, Lady Blue achieves that in spades.

    28. Currently reading books set in Hawaii, and this one has a nice flavor of the islands as they (probably) are now, rather than historically. Mian character lives on a boat called the Travis Mcgee, and in some ways, the story is a nice homage to the John D. MacDonald books. The character is somewhat McGee-ish. The author will need to introduce a Meyer-like philosophical sidekick to be a true heir to the MacDonald tradition. Overall enjoyed it very much; satisfying resolution.
