Elima—imaginary Elima. It is one of the Neighbor Islands. That is what the residents of the main island of Oahu call the other islands in Hawaii.

Time Off for Murder :- Zelda Popkin made a definite place for herself when her first mystery novel Death Wears a White Gardenia was published. The New York Times Book Review said: "Zelda Popkin has a genuine talent for writing mystery stories." The Saturday Review's Guide to Detective Fiction, The Criminal Record, pronounced the Verdict, "Good!" In Time Off For Murder Mary Carner, the efficient department store detective, leaves her job at Blankfort's Fifth Avenue Store when her friend, Phyllis Knight, a young socialite attorney is found murdered after having been missing for six months. Inspector Heinsheimer of the New York Homicide Squad admires Mary Carner and is willing to work with her but - Mary is finally on her own entirely; poking into the affairs of Rockey Nardello who is doing time as leader of a numbers racket gang. Dangerous? . . . so Mary Carner found out! Smart, tough, sophisticated, fast, Time Off For Murder keep mystery fans burning the midnight oil.
Quite Contrary :- The unusual thing about the collection QUITE CONTRARY is the range of subgenre. Although these are all crime stories, each is vastly different in its approach to the crime. One story, "A Step Above The Beasts," borders on horror, following the actions of a highly ethical murderer. "Time, The Thief," which is set in a piazza in Italy, shows the power of imagination, and comes dangerously close to being a romance. In several of the stories, notably "Five Points Of View," who the bad guy is may come as a surprise or even remain a mystery. There is humor here and even a bit of parody, as in "Detour On Mean Street," the dilemma of a hard-boiled PI caught up in a cozy. These stories have appeared in seven different publications. Two of them ("Quite Contrary" and "The Plot Thickens") won contests and one ("Quite Contrary") has since appeared in a mystery anthology printed in Japan.
Mana :- The setting is the Big Island of Hawaii. With its active volcano and its frequent earthquakes, it has long been the subject of Polynesian legends. And, at the core of the legends, are the tales told of the alii, the Polynesian nobility, who possessed a strange power making them invulnerable to attack. Lehua Watanabe, investigative reporter for the Kona News, suddenly acquires this mysterious force, which serves her well in her encounter with organized crime, but which also has strange and unwanted side effects.
Mayhem, Mystery and Murder :- Mayhem, Mystery and Murder by John A. Broussard
"Back when I was a kid growing up in South Chicago, I never dreamed that having a Lebanese father and a Syrian mother would turn out to be an asset. But my ancestry paid off big-time when I sat down across from Timothy Fisher at a San Francisco sidewalk I on that warm September morning.
Murder at Milltown Junior College :- John A. Broussard's MURDER AT MILLTOWN JUNIOR COLLEGE is packed to the last page with murder and suspense. This exciting mystery begins with the murder of Milltown JC's un-beloved president Gilbert Green.
Expect the Unexpected :- The lovely, lonely princess wandered along the edge of a pond thinking about finding a mate, but her father’s kingdom was poor, and no noble had ever asked for her hand.
