Neil Plakcy's Books and Stories The Same Page Last year, when I read about gay men being imprisoned and tortured in the former Soviet state of Chechnya, I was horrified and moved, and worried that the world wasn’t paying enough attention to the problem.

In the first book, “Mahu,” we see a closeted Honolulu detective, regretful of his absent love life and fearful of what might happen if the other policemen were to learn his Mahu book. I will drop a bit of a spoiler here—but an unavoidable one—to tell you that the crux of this book, other than the murder itself, is that Kimo has to out himself in order to solve the case/5(43).

Kimo Kanapa’aka, a gay police Mahu book in Honolulu, Hawaii. Book 1. MahuAuthor: Neil S. Plakcy. Mahu The first book in the Mahu series is simply titled Mahu. The story is a personal one for Kimo as he is drawn to a gay bar in the city. It is here where he starts to accept the fact that he is indeed a gay man and tries to get away from the worries that he had with regards to hiding his true self.

Mahu is a great combination of mystery and coming out novel. In the course of an investigation at a gay bar, Kimo, so deep in the closet he can hardly see the door, suddenly finds himself and his sexuality at risk of being exposed.4/5.

James Mahu has 55 books on Goodreads with ratings. James Mahu’s most popular book is Quantusum. In the first book, “Mahu,” we see a closeted Honolulu detective, regretful of his absent love life and fearful of what might happen if the other policemen were to learn his secret.

I will Mahu book a bit of a spoiler here—but an unavoidable one—to tell you that the crux of this book, other than the murder itself, is that Kimo has to out himself in order to solve the case/5(43). My first published novel was Mahu, about a Honolulu homicide detective dragged out of the closet during a tough case.

I put a lot of myself into Kimo Kanapa'aka, the hero, and yet he's very much his own character, and much better than I am. He has had a powerful hold on my imagination for many years. The Mahu series written by Neil Plakcy is comprised of a total of 10 books, which were released between the years and All the books of this series feature the lead character in the role of a gay cop named Kimo Kanapa’aka, who resides and works in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Mahu was the first of the Plakcy series that I read, and it hooked me on getting all the rest, as well as other storylines by the same author. I particularly enjoy the depictions of Hawaii, but also the mystery-lines as I work my way through each story I think to myself that I am reading about actual cases/5(9).

Mahu Blood is the sixth book in the series and finds Kimo in an established relationship with his partner Mike Riccardi. This story focuses on a complex mystery involving different groups that are campaigning for Hawaiian independence/5. Mahu Blood is probably one of my best titles because of the dual meaning.

It’s a murder investigation so of course there’s blood. But this book is also about Hawaiian heritage, and what Kimo his inherited from his Hawaiian ancestors.

He weaves together fact with fictionalized mythology as the warp and woof of a story that is essential for the next three generations of humanity.

He threads mythological elements of the ACIO and. Fast-paced, intricately plotted, thoroughly enjoyable, Mahu is a sexy, surprisingly moving mystery about discovering oneself as much as catching a killer. Plakcy is a four-time finalist for the Lambda Literary Award.

This is the first in the series. What the critics have said about the Mahu Investigations: "Plakcy keeps the waves of suspense crashing!"/5(2). Māhū ('in the middle') in Kanaka Maoli (Hawaiian) and Maohi (Tahitian) cultures are third gender persons with traditional spiritual and social roles within the culture, similar to Tongan fakaleiti and Samoan fa'afafine.

With the second book in the series, Mahu Surfer, Plakcy moved to Alyson Books, which continued the series with Mahu Fire and Mahu Vice, and published their own edition of Mahu in After the close of Alyson, MLR Books picked up the series, publishing new.
