[Dooley’s] greatest hits were darned impressive, and it’ll likely be enough for Sunny Skies, Shady Characters to join the short list of books considered must-reads for those seeking to understand Hawaii. -- David Shapiro ― Honolulu Star-Advertiser
Sunny Skies, Shady Characters by James Dooley―Hawaii's bravest investigative reporter―recounts the secret history of Hawaii that all of us have been waiting for: a book of shocking revelations, featuring a cast of thieves, heavies, enforcers, and yakuza thugs and sneaks who have so intimidated the islands that the truth of their villainy has been suppressed―until now. At last, we know where the bodies are buried, and who buried them. -- Paul Theroux
The stories recounted here were once front-page news and they lose none of their timeliness in the translation into a book. For those who lived through those times, the book is an opportunity to recall the scandals and scoundrels that infested Hawai'i, and for those too young to remember, it is a reminder of why a vigilant press is an essential ingredient to an informed public. -- Gerald Kato, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa --This text refers to the paperback edition.

To me the book felt rushed at the end, which is a shame.
If you are a Hawaii resident, this is really a must read. And if you're a visitor, you'll still learn a lot about how Hawaii works by reading these tales.
And Dooley is a pretty good story teller, so it's a good ride.
