Glamorous private investigator Patrick de Courvoisier’s laidback lifestyle is upended when a starlet goes missing in this action-packed mystery. Content to leave his controversial past behind him and enjoy a more relaxed, hedonistic lifestyle on a converted houseboat in the glamorous French resort of Cannes, enigmatic Englishman Patrick de Courvoisier is known as ‘Le Limier’ or ‘Fixer’. People come to him with their problems—and he fixes them. However, when Camille Ager asks Patrick to find her sister, Angele Valette, star of the new movie The Black Pearl, Patrick’s laidback lifestyle is dealt a terminal blow. Last seen at the film’s lavish launch party on board the luxurious black yacht owned by Russian oligarch Vasily Chapayev, the funds behind the movie and owner of the famous black pearl, Angele seems to have vanished into thin air—and so has the pearl. As Patrick questions all those involved with the movie, he discovers that this is a case where nothing is as it seems. And when a dead body turns up on his boat, the investigation takes a deeply disturbing new twist. “Courvoisier is a dashing, sophisticated hero, and with an action-packed plot, filled with violence and shocking twists, this page-turner will more than satisfy fans of jet-setting suspense.” —Booklist “A fast-moving plot.” —Kirkus Reviews “Fast and clever.” —Library Journal

Nineteen thirty-nine Hawaii: two Hollywood actresses, the artillery brigade’s handsomest officer and finest polo player, the polo player’s beautiful wife, a Japanese carrier pilot who is sketching the aerial approach to Pearl Harbor, and the captain of the sketcher’s sampan unite in a mélange of passionate encounters that find coherence in the symbology of a Tahitian black pearl. Sidelights are the gold mesh necklace concealed in the God Kane’s chest and the emerald cut diamond lost in the sand of the officer’s beach at Waialua. BookWire Review January 23, 2006 Bidwell Moore’s fast-paced novella recreates 1939 military and social life in Hawaii as it existed just a few years before the attack on Pearl Harbor that changed the tranquil islands forever. Moore intertwines the lives of a cast of interesting characters, including two glamorous Hollywood actresses, a group of soldiers and their wives, and quirky island locals, as well as a Japanese carrier pilot who is sketching the aerial approach to Pearl Harbor. Charlotte Ross is a beautiful, young, military wife who is also a treasure hunter. She is trying to discover the identity of the owner of a gold mesh necklace concealed in a statue of the island god Kane. While searching for sea treasure, Charlotte survives a near-fatal accident and has a brief but memorable encounter with a handsome Japanese pilot that will forever change her life. Later, a mysterious black pearl is sent to her. To help her solve the mystery of the pearl, Charlotte employs the help of Max Frazier, the island’s best private investigator, who is also looking for an expensive piece of jewelry—this one is an emerald-cut diamond lost by one of the actresses in the sands of the officer’s beach at Waialua. The story’s surprise ending neatly wraps up several of the book’s subplots, bringing together the characters in ways the reader would never have imagined. Moore’s vast knowledge of Hawaii and Japan (he lived for a time in both locations) and his experience as an assistant military attaché give the book an authentic tone. His fast-paced narrative, while engaging, switches points of view so often that the plot is sometimes choppy and difficult to follow. Taken as a whole, however, The Black Pearl is an intriguing and enthralling tale of pre-World War II life in Hawaii.
