LET'S GET COZY! MURDER ON BAMBOO LANE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
MURDER ON BAMBOO LANE
An Officer Ellie Rush Mystery
BY NAOMI HIRAHARA

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Trouble awaits rookie LAPD Officer Ellie Rush as she patrols the mean streets of Los Angeles on her bicycle...

Bike cop Ellie Rush dreams of becoming a homicide detective, but it’s still a shock when the first dead body she encounters on the job is that of a former college classmate.

At the behest of her Aunt Cheryl, the highest-ranking Asian-American officer in the LAPD (a source of pride for Ellie’s grandmother, but annoyance to her mom), Ellie becomes tangled in the investigation of the coed’s murder—with equal parts help and hindrance from her nosy best friend, her over-involved ex-boyfriend, a smoldering detective, and seemingly everyone else in her extended family...only to uncover secrets that a killer may go to any lengths to ensure stay hidden. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 
Naomi Hirahara is the Edgar® Award-winning author of the Mas Arai Mysteries. Born and raised in Pasadena, Naomi received her bachelor’s degree in international relations from Stanford University and studied at the Inter-University Center for Advanced Japanese Language Studies in Tokyo. She worked as a reporter and editor of The Rafu Shimpo in downtown Los Angeles. She is also the author of 1001 Cranes and has written, edited, and published several nonfiction books, largely about the Japanese American experience.

A cop on a bike in L.A.? I guess there are a few places that could be true (other than beach cities). I've lived in the L.A. area for most of my life. I'd love to read a book about an area I know so well.
