Tampa, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/05/2013 --Judith Norling Carlson’s book Thunder in the Tropics, is murder and mystery set in the beautiful background of Hawaii, but like the island’s beautiful bougainvillea - every flower has its thorns.

Enjoying their much needed vacation, Ashley and Candace are stunned to see a missing woman's picture in a local newspaper. It is the same young Hawaiian woman they saw days earlier at the Whalebone Inn in Lahaina arguing with a young man. Their vacation takes even a more ominous twist when the young women’s body is found washed up on Ma’alaea Bay. When they learn the woman was murdered, they are propelled into a web of suspense, lies, and deception. From that point on, their world turns upside down when they realize the significance of what they saw and heard at the Whalebone Inn.

The two amateur sleuths are drawn to the intrigue and they try to unravel the clues that will point to the killer. Foolish choices and mistakes put them in great danger, and nothing is as it appears. All too soon they find themselves in a net closing tighter and tighter – They have become the hunted.
