Killing Maine by Mike Bond

Killing MaineKilling Maine by Mike Bond
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The synopsis of the book was really attractive with a mix of politics and murder mystery set in Maine. Yes it was a good story and merits the three stars on that basis however I found the writing style not an easy one to read. Pono Hawkins a surfer and veteran special forces travels from Hawaii to Maine to help his services colleague prove his innocence of murder and criminal damage of wind turbines. Maine is in the grip of industrial wind corporations who regularly paid off the local politicians in order to line their pockets with federal wind subsidies. To provide additional entertainment the author gives us the lowdown on Pono's attraction to women. Overall the book is a good story but I was distracted by the style which ultimately diminished my enjoyment.
