Poison in Paradise

By Jim Shon


The year is 1986 in the multi-cultural and multi-ethnic mosaic that is Hawaii. Poison in Paradise is about power politics, crime arrogance, cover-ups, the media, and the inner working of a legislature. It is set at a time when the environmental movement was just learning to challenge the growing appetite for development and profit.

Follow the inner thoughts and maneuvers of rival legislators, and how the world of the state capitol is interwoven with the corporate appetites of a declining agricultural industry, the state of the media and how it covered public affairs before the arrival of the Internet.

As you’re familiar, during these extraordinary times, we’ve taken on significant volume and have had to extend our turnaround times on U.S. orders over the last two weeks. As we manage that previous volume and continually receive new orders, we must extend our turnaround times further. As a result, we’re required to further extend the turnaround times for U.S. print orders. We expect to be back to traditional operating turnaround times in a few weeks and appreciate your business and support during this challenging time.
