Editorial Reviews

Review

Dooley's a born storyteller. Many reporters are, but the requirements of daily journalism usually leave out the back-story that tells, or amuses, or frightens. The memoir of a career sets the writer free. And Dooley uses that freedom here. [He] also provides every journalism teacher in the state with a first-rate textbook that teaches the hard slog required to do investigative reporting. -- Dan Boylan ― MidWeek

[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.

About the Author

Raised in San Francisco and the Bay Area, James Dooley worked as a United Press International reporter in Honolulu in 1973 and a year later joined the staff of the Honolulu Advertiser, where he was an investigative reporter for nearly two decades. After five years at Honolulu's KITV News, Dooley returned to the Advertiser in 2002 and moved to online reporting at Hawaii Reporter in 2010. He retired in 2012. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
