Publisher's Summary

"An action packed, must read novel ... " - Washington Times
When a beautiful journalist drowns mysteriously off Waikiki, former Special Forces veteran Pono Hawkins, now a well-known surfer and international surfing correspondent, quickly gets caught up in trying to solve her death. What he learns soon targets him for murder or life in prison as a cabal of powerful energy corporations, foreign killers and crooked politicians focuses the blame on him.
Haunted by memories of Afghanistan, and determined to protect the Hawaii he loves from dirty politics tied to huge destructive energy developments, Pono turns to Special Forces buddies and his own skills to fight his deadly enemies, trying to both save himself and track down her killers.
Alive with the sights, sounds and history of Hawaii, Saving Paradise is also a rich portrait of what Pono calls "the seamy side of paradise", and a relentless thriller of politics, lies, manhunts and remorseless murder.
"A rousing crime thriller." - Book Chase

Save the world!

I understand the author's concerns but the plot played second fiddle to his rantings. I call them rants because he kept repeating himself.

Writers political bent was to much

Would you try another book from Mike Bond and/or Luke Daniels?


What was most disappointing about Mike Bond’s story?

He forgot to write the story just a soapbox for his political views. If that is what I wanted would have went to another type book

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His sing song voice was very distracting

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Saving Paradise?

All his soapbox grandstanding

Any additional comments?

Won't buy any more of his books and if it hadn't been so cheap I would have returned it
