This map has taken some time to develop. As with any city, growth in Honolulu has caused communities to overlap with major roads as well as each other. Please let me know if you find a major flaw and I'll try to correct it!
In Prospect for Murder [the first Natalie Seachrist Mystery] semi-retired journalist Natalie is living in a high-rise condominium in Waikīkī. When her grandniece dies in a mysterious fall, she packs up a few household goods and Miss Una [her fleet-footed feline companion] and moves up to the Makiki apartment Ariel was planning to rent. There she learns of the exotic Shānghai origins of the complex’s owners, and more than a little discord. But with the help of her visions and Keoni Hewitt [a retired police detective turned private investigator], she is able to solve the mystery of the girl’s unfortunate death.
Murder on Mokulua Drive, finds Natalie and Keoni living in a cottage in Lanikai, where they anticipate peaceful beach-side living. Life is smooth until the night of Keoni’s birthday party, when a brutal death occurs at the home of their neighbors. Was the death of the retired human rights activist a random homicide, or might it have been connected to her years of helping women and children around the world? Again, the sleuthing of Natalie and Keoni [and Miss Una] help his former partner, Lt. John Dias to solve the crime and confirm the uncanny usefulness of her haunting visions.
In Murders of Conveyance, Journalist Natalie Seachrist and her boyfriend private investigator Keoni Hewett are delighted to plunge into a Chinese New Year Aloha Scavenger Hunt. But when she realizes a haunting dream is actually one of her continuing visions of murder, the pair again volunteer to help his former partner, HPD homicide detective John Dias. Soon her expanding visions and the unrelenting assistance of feline companion Miss Una link two murders separated by sixty years to a mystery woman in red... and a false clue hinting at a priceless white jade Kuan Yin statue.
