The author has honed his novel skills as Hawaii's national award-winning columnist and screenwriter. In his is new mystery novel, written in three acts, this reader had spontaneous bursts of laugher as vivid views of Hawaii's eccentricities were revealed. Mr. Memminger's characters evolved through his crime investing experiences. "I knew Ronnie Ching, who was a 300-pound hitman, so Tiny Maunakea is based on him, more or less. Blue Hookane is based on a real investigator for prosecutor Charles Marsland’s office," said Memminger in a January 2013 Honolulu Magazine interview.
