"This was such a refreshing change for the detective genre. The characters were ever so filled with the weaknesses that make the rest of us human. I enjoyed the adventure and the unique nature of the plot. The two main characters are very well developed and have qualities all of us can relate to. I hated to see the book end and look forward to Ganninger's next novel." -- Amazon reviewer

There's trouble on the water, and the Icarus team is on the case to discover why a mysterious piece of cargo is so important, and why everyone wants a piece of it.

With the business faltering and Galveston's love life in shambles, Murphy is determined to get things back on track. Even when it means he has to knock some sense into a lovelorn Galveston. Just as things look bleak, the PI's catch a big break. An insurance investigator named Maddie Jenkins needs their trademark, unique services to find her prized lost cargo that was aboard a merchant container ship traveling from Hong Kong to Los Angeles. It mysteriously disappeared in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and no one knows why.

Murphy and Galveston realize that this could be the payday they had always dreamed about. But did the ship simply have an accident at sea, or did something more sinister happen to it? The detectives cross from one side of the earth to the other as they follow a breadcrumb trail of clues. Their adventure becomes increasingly more complex and dangerous when they discover what this ship was really carrying. Little did they know, they had been drawn into the mysterious case of the Peeking Duck.

Peeking Duck is packed with non-stop action, adventure, fun, and humor - without profanity or graphic adult situations (but still plenty of mayhem) - that will keep you at the edge of your seat. So join the adventure and escape with the private eyes of Icarus Investigations.

Save $2 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Twelve years ago a little girl went missing. Now the old secrets are bubbling to the surface again, as Hawaiian massage therapist Nani Palea, her tattooist brother Kaleo, and local policeman Hank search for the truth. Woven around their story are fascinating snippets about island life and traditions, as well as the increasingly chilling voice of the evil that has been living among them. This is a thoroughly enjoyable mystery in an unusual setting, with a cast of distinctive and memorable characters." -- Amazon reviewer

When secrets are kept too long . . .

Keawalani is a village on the Big Island of Hawai'i, tucked away where tourists rarely go. Life is sweet and uncomplicated until Maile Palea, an 8-year-old girl, disappears. Twelve years later she is still missing. A Time of Secrets is the story of Maile's sister and brother who never give up trying to find her and cannot heal until they do, of a village that no longer feels safe from a changing world, and of a perpetrator who discovers what disastrous things happen when you keep secrets too long.

The story unfolds with equal parts dread and humor, seen through the eyes of many quirky villagers, be they natives or haoles from the mainland. It is the emotional backdrop for the volcanic romance erupting between Maile's grieving sister and the island cop who faces down his own fears to solve the crime.

If you love authentic Hawaiian lifestyle from crafts to art to foods - and if you like your stories served up with suspense and hot tropical nights - this is a rich, satisfying adventure just for you. Aloha!
