The Dark Secret Behind Hawaii’s Most Notorious Crime

The Untold Story of the Massie Case

It was the case that had it all – murder and intrigue, white supremacy in an island paradise, and a courtroom drama featuring the great Clarence Darrow himself. Set in Prohibition-era Hawaii, the Massie Affair captivated the entire country, as it laid bare the deep social ills behind the Territory’s idyllic façade.

But was there more to the story? A half-century after the case closed, a federal agent with first-hand knowledge of the crime shared his own tale with author John Madinger, providing the inspiration for Pipe Dreams – an intriguing new twist on the case that changed Hawaii forever.

John Madinger was raised in Honolulu and served for three decades as a state and federal law enforcement officer, mostly in America’s war on drugs. Considered one of the country’s leading authorities on money laundering, he is the author of Money Laundering: A Guide for Criminal Investigators, Third Edition and Confidential Informant: Law Enforcement’s Most Valuable Tool. Pipe Dreams is his second novel. He has received awards for fiction, non-fiction, short stories, and even poetry.
