by Mike Bond
3.8 of 5.0
Wow! Mike Bond does well with his Pono character. This is the second I've read with him, I don't know if he was introduced in an earlier book. I dig the surfer dude trying to hang out in Maine in this one. A fish out of water really. But Pono sees what's at stake.
And I'm not even bothered by him getting himself in to trouble with 1st WOMEN, jeez, Pono take a break! And 2nd with his loyalty to friends who were even bad to him (i.e., he's helping the character in this one that actually testified and had Pono jailed earlier - although the case was dropped eventually.)
Great writing, love the story and the characters and the regional descriptions. Even shed a tear in this one.
