Kurzbeschreibung

Edgar Rice Burroughs created the wildly popular Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, but the exploits of his heroes cannot rival the writer’s own explosive adventure, sparked by the tragic murder of an exotic young beauty on a moon-swept Honolulu beach.

The killing is written off as the tragic result of a lovers’ quarrel, but Burroughs suspects that the alluring half-Japanese singer was executed by espionage agents. It’s December 6, 1941. War with Japan is looming, and Burroughs has reason to suspect an attack on Oahu is imminent. Was the songstress silenced to prevent her from “singing” about certain sinister plans? As Burroughs and his son Hully search for clues and track down suspects, all signs point to the next day—Sunday—as the perfect time for a Japanese invasion. But the thought of such devastation raining down on paradise seems almost unbelievable….

Set against the catastrophic aerial strike that led the United States into another world war, The Pearl Harbor Murders effortlessly mixes hard-hitting action and exotic romance in this gripping untold chapter from our nation’s most tragic day.

HASH(0x91d9f864) von 5 Sternen Competent mystery, very good atmospherics 18. November 2002
Von Andrew S. Rogers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm of mixed minds about this whole trend of taking famous real-world people and turning them into murder-solving detectives. From a writer's standpoint, I can see why such an idea would be tempting -- not only do you get a "character" pre-invented, as it were, but you also, as author Max Allan Collins admits to doing in his acknowledgements, can write about people you particularly admire or are interested in. Much the same reasoning applies, I suppose, to readers of these kinds of stories. If you, too, are a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs, seeing him and his son investigate a murder might be a very compelling read.
Myself, I'm more a student of the Pearl Harbor attack, and I read this mystery in part for the story itself, but mostly to see how the author wove the true-life events of late 1941 into his story. And the answer is, pretty well (of course, he's had some practice at this, having written several other disaster-based murder mysteries as well).
The crime-solving part of the story is a fairly standard follow-the-clues/unravel-the-secrets tale, and if it had been set in Dubuque in 1974, I don't think I would have given it more than three stars. But it's the way the tale is woven into the larger historical context of the Pearl Harbor attack (and it's not giving away any plot secrets to say that the attack ends up being part of the story) that's most interesting to me, and the author pulled it off quite well. True-life events, like the Mori "flowers in bloom" radiotelephone message (which may or may not have been in code), or a front-porch meeting between Colonel Kendall Fielder and General Walter Short on the evening of December 6, are drafted into service as part of this story. Author Collins credits his researcher, and lists in his acknowledgements many of the key titles in Pearl Harbor historiography, including the Prange trilogy. I second that commendation, because the factual scaffolding on which this story hangs seems pretty solid to me. Collins also does a nice job with the general "atmospherics" of late-1941 Honolulu.
On the whole, the setting and the real-world history involved elevate the workmanlike mystery quite a bit. And if you happen to be a Burroughs fan, so much the better.

HASH(0x91d9f8b8) von 5 Sternen Edgar Rice Burroughs solves murders at Pearl Harbor 8. April 2002
Von James L. Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Max Allan Collins is a master. He starts with a fragment of history -- the fact that Edgar Rice Burroughs (author of the Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars yarns) was at Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941, and witnessed the attack -- and blends history and mystery in equal parts to present an ultimately satisfactory dective-styled procedural novel. He styles the book much like Burroughs did his, alternating points of view with each chapter and building to the climax we all see coming.
Collins leavens the tale with observations about Burroughs' career, personal and family life, and other tidbits Burroughs fans will find engaging.
An excellent novel, well worth the investment of a couple of afternoons in an easy chair.

HASH(0x91d9fb94) von 5 Sternen fabulous historical mystery 1. Mai 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
On December 5, 1941, most Americans living on Hawaii knows that war with Japan is imminent, but they feel the islands are safe from an external attack. Most of the residences are more concerned with the loyalties of the local Japanese-American population, which is a third of the island and are afraid they will sabotage things on the islands.

Edgar Rice Burroughs and his adult son Hully enjoy their time together on Oahu. Ed agrees to arrange a meeting between Amerasian singer Pearl Harada and Army Intelligence Chief, Colonel Kendell Fielder. Pearl needs to persuade Kendell that she loves his son and wants his blessing for them to marry. The next morning, a scream awakens Ed who runs outside to see the corpse of Pearl. Unable to resist investigating her death, Ed begins making inquiries. He wonders if one of Pearl's string of ex-lovers killed her, Bill's outraged dad murdered her, or as the evidence begins to mount someone silenced her because she learned something about the event that is to occur the very next day?

Max Allan Collins is known for his award winning historical mysteries, especially those starring a famous author during a real life disaster. The current author-driven tale, THE PEARL HARBOR MURDERS, is an absolutely excellent blending of history and fiction into a powerful tale. Mr. Collins paints a picture of the islands just before and during the Japanese air attack while also providing a close look at the legendary writer. One day, a future author will star Mr. Collins solving a mystery while writing one of his fabulous novels for he has earned it with his achievements.

HASH(0x91d9fef4) von 5 Sternen Interesting setting, so-so mystery 12. November 2002
Von J. Carroll - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Setting a murder mystery in Pearl Harbor, just prior to the Japanese attack makes this an interesting read. The bits of history are fascinating and compensate for the rather pedestrian plot. Combining fictional and historical figures works well as they seamlessly combine, but the basic problem is the mystery is no mystery. The plot moves along at a good clip; but it leads to a foregone conclusion. Using Edgar Rice Burroughs as the detective fits in with the actual events, but it seems almost an afterthought, and is merely another hook to get readers interested. Not a bad little page turner, but nothing else.

HASH(0x91da40f0) von 5 Sternen Truly captures pre-war Waikiki 10. Dezember 2013
Von Akamai22 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was born and reared in Hawaii; I lived in Waikiki in 1950-53. That's important for this review as the places and people he describes were mostly still there when I lived in Waikiki (which is where most of this novel takes place).
The author's ability to accurately describe the feel of the place and the people is truly amazing... I had to look at the photo to see if he was someone old enough to have actually lived in pre-war Waikiki (he's about 40 years too young). His abilities are truly amazing in this regard.
Toward the end of the book he has a pretty detailed description of the Pearl Harbor attack, a subject about which I have read a lot, and again his description is very accurate but (appropriately) more detached and impersonal than the early portions of the book.
Woven throughout all this atmosphere and history is a murder mystery, which is just OK.... there's not much of a surprise when the various bad guys are revealed.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely, because pre-war Hawaii disappeared rapidly, being mostly gone by the mid-60's and this book captures it beautifully. "From Here to Eternity" spoke to the same time period from the perspective of the young, naive soldiers. This book - while not in the same class - speaks well to the civilian perspective of the same time and many of the same events and places.
