Six months ago, if anyone would have told Em Johnson she’d end up divorced, broke, and running the dilapidated Tiki Goddess Bar on the magical North Shore of Kauai she would have told them to shove a swizzle stick up their okole.

With the help of a quirky dance troupe of over-the-hill Hula Maidens, Em and the cast of characters must ban together to find the killer and solve the mystery before the next pupu party.

“Klingler makes supreme use of his tech knowledge in a grisly mystery that strives to address the ethics of content ownership. His effortlessly clever prose makes the subject thoroughly entertaining…a thoughtful, well-constructed tale.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Cleverly designed, //Mash Up// is the perfect detective read, as well as a classic addition to the noir genre.” — San Francisco Book Review (5 of 5 Stars)

The arrival of an Amazon box whose content sends the roommate into hysterics leads to a midnight “accident”, a boat named With A Bullet, and a web of cyber-clues: a shocking YouTube video, a mysterious virus attacking music fans, and the curious power of a craigslist ad.
“Klingler is skilled at writing action scenes. He puts the reader directly in the line of fire, and he doesn’t let up…Anyone interested in thrillers or police procedurals will find much to appreciate in this newest Qigiq installment.”—Foreword Clarion Reviews (4 Star ****)
I grew up in the Ozark Mountains and helped my uncle run a fishing camp on the Jacks Fork River during the summer. I wrote the novel Blue Hole, which has received over (500) reviews and 126,000 downloads, based on a story my Grandfather told about a dead man he found in his swimming hole.
Because readers wanted more I wrote the SEQUEL River’s Edge. In that story I aged Dub (12) and brother Tommy (15) by 50 years and made them Grandfathers who take their Grandsons to the Blue Hole where a murder occurred the last time they were there in 1949. They become a family of cold case detectives. It’s not easy to solve a (50) year old murder but they are up for the task.
Blue Hole and River’s Edge are enjoyed by ALL ages.
(Review By) AMAZON KINDLE — Featured Author Review — Rolland Love “Love’s writing transfigures his Ozark Mountains stories into a series of fantastic tales Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer could have only dreamed of.”
Hundreds of readers have compared my writing style to Mark Twain.

With a little help, they escape custody and fight to clear their names of murder. As the news spreads, every redneck in the county and beyond—family, friend or foe—wants a piece of Willem and Murven’s 15 minutes of infamy.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love reading crime and romance genres, so my goal from the outset was to write a novel that perfectly balanced crime and romance. I have such an active imagination and I truly enjoy transcribing it into words. As I am writing, the people, places and things come to life before me and I completely lose myself. Writing is my meditation.
