The Musubi Murder by Frankie Bow

indie ebook cover

Small town life. Big academic egos. Revenge. Murder. Spam.
Professor Molly Barda wants to focus on her job at remote Mahina State University and stay out of trouble until she gets tenure. Just as she's settling in and starting to enjoy life in rural Hawaii, her bottom-line-obsessed dean orders her to track down a missing donor. As she explores the island's lunch plate shops, Buddhist temples, and the local pig-hunting scene, she finds herself neck-deep in a stew of old grudges, whispered scandals, and murder. Along the way, she starts to fall for the too-good-to-be-true entrepreneur Donnie Gonsalves, who seems to like her for all the wrong reasons--and has a few secrets of his own. (Oh, and she can't forget about her committee meetings, her still-unfinished conference presentation, that stack of ungraded papers, and her overdue weekly report to the Student Retention Office.)

The Musubi Murder is Book One of the Molly Barda Mysteries, and the first campus murder mystery set in Hawaii. If you're a Hawaii expatriate, a disillusioned academic, or a fan of pessimistic, snarky humor, you'll enjoy what one reviewer described as "Dorothy Parker meets Jane Smiley."

Buy The Musubi Murder for the embittered, underemployed academic in your life (maybe that's you!) and add the Whispersync audiobook for just a couple dollars more.

About The Author...

indie author

Frankie Bow


Like Molly Barda, Frankie Bow teaches at a public university. Unlike her protagonist, she is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, and a perfectly nice office chair. She believes if life isn’t fair, at least it can be entertaining.

In addition to writing murder mysteries, she publishes in scholarly journals under her real name. Her experience with academic publishing has taught her to take nothing personally.
