    • 3.85 stars rounded upNeil Plakcy's "Mahu" is one of the few gay-mystery series that I read. I enjoy this series for being quite balanced between the day-to-day investigation and the updates of the life of Kimo Kanapaka'a. "Natural Predators" is book #7 -- on the mystery side, Kimo and his detective-partner Ray investigating the death of an old lawyer while on the personal-life side, Kimo and his life-partner is finally moving forward with the idea of having baby with their lesbian friends, Cathy [...]


    • I want more. I want the author to keep writing this series for ever. That's how I feel right now and I feel this way because Detective Kimo Kanapa'aka is one of my favourite characters. I just lurve him. I lurve this series. I lurve the setting and I lurrrrrve Hawaii.This series has it all for me : Kimo, murder, mystery and Hawaii. I could actually stop there but I have to try and explain why I enjoyed this book and why I hope for many more.Hawaii is one of my favourite places on earth and to ha [...]


    • This is another great installment in this series. I'm really enjoying seeing Kimo and Mike's relationship develop and grow stronger. They can have disagreements now without them becoming big fights, and they've learned from previous disagreements. They're also thinking about making that next step in expanding their family. And even Gunter gets to have some development in his character and the direction of his life, so it was fun to see how they're all growing up. There's even a possible job chan [...]


    • This is another good installment in the Mahu series, an ongoing gay mystery series about Honolulu homicide detective Kimo Kanapa'aka. By this point Kimo is in a stable relationship with his boyfriend Mike, a fire investigator. They share a home, and a dog, and are talking about sharing even more in the future. This series is composed of one solid book after another. They are definitely best read in order, since the heart of the series is Kimo's progress from being inadvertently outed in the firs [...]


    • 4 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book Reviewsmmgoodbookreviews.wordpress/This story is part of a series and is best read in order. Kimo and his fire investigator life partner, Mike, are called to an early morning warehouse fire where a dead body has been discovered. Kimo and Ray, his work partner, have to dig deep into Hawaii’s history to resolve the murder of a high profile patrician, just who is killing off the elders of the Island and why? Whilst investigating the murder, Kimo and Mike ta [...]


    • Full disclosure: I'm a huge Neil Plakcy fan, so any new book by him has me all a-tremble with anticipation. Most of all I have loved his "Mahu" series, the title based on Hawai'ian slang for "queer." His newest entry into that long series moves Kimo Kanapa'aka in a direction that might not please everybody; but for this middle-aged gay father of two, it went right to where I live.Plakcy's murder mystery plots are always interesting, and always tied somehow into the unique culture of Hawai'i, the [...]


    • I'm sad - this is last full length Kimo at present and I have enjoyed reading this series and seeing Kimo grow as a person. Though part of the theme in this one is Kimo still being immature!It felt a much softer book. The murder element definitely took a back seat for me, and even though there were murders it was much more of an investigation into the past for me. Not as gritty in the police elements as previous.However, this was more than balanced out by the developments in Mike and Kimo's life [...]


    • The Mahu series is one that I have followed from the start and it's one that I particularly like. I've enjoyed watching Kimo develop as a proud, gay man and I also really like the mysteries that are presented.I find that these days I want to read longer stories and series so that I can bond with the main character and I have certainly done this with Kimo.Although in this book Kimo and his work partner Ray spend a lot of time investigating the deaths of two elderly characters I really feel that t [...]


    • Once more, it was very satisfying to immerse myself into Kimo's world. As usual, Neil Plakcy writes in a fluid, natural style that makes for easy and gratifying reading. In this book, I felt happily reunited with Kimo's partner, Mike. So often, in first person point of view writing, it is easy to be swamped with the experiences of the protagonist at the expense of some of the supporting characters. I felt this a little in the last book, but in Natural Predators the old magic and easy sexuality b [...]


    • This book is a very good example of why I love series so much. We get to know the characters gradually and get a feeling of intimacy without it ever feeling rushed or artificial. I've just spent a great few days immersed in Kimo and Mike's world and couldn't get enough. Highly recommended, as is the whole Mahu series.


    • Fantastic mystery, as always. It was great to catch up with Mike and Kimo and the rest of the ohana. Looking forward to the next one already. :)




    • Kimo investigates a mystery while pondering parenthood. Reliable story, with all the things that characterize the other books in the series.
