One Man In Paradise Has Been Very Busy

One Man's Paradise by Douglas CorleoneDouglas Corleone, author of ONE MAN’S PARADISE, is all over the place these days!

He’s received lots of attention from reviewers, beginning with the Honolulu Weekly, who says:

This is a strong book, one with the ring of authenticity. Corvelli — and by extension, author Corleone — may be new to this, but he knows it, and he’s a quick study. That Hawaii is one of the United States and yet not part of “America” is among the book’s many thoughtful motifs, and its ear for the lilt and cadence of local speech is right on. As a crime novel, One Man’s Paradise is inventive and active and the twists keep on coming, which is what we’re looking for in crime fiction. That, and a protagnist to believe in, and it’s on this front that the book fully delivers — Kevin Corvelli is tough, quick-witted and funny. He’s also just soft enough for us to root for — mainland mores, alligator shoes and all.

Buried Under Books exclaims, “Paradise is a very good first novel. Corleone is walking in some pretty big footsteps (Koryta leaps to mind) but he certainly has the potential to keep up. One Man’s Paradise is another man’s good read.”

“This is a quick, fun read that will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you begging for more. John Grisham better watch his back because Douglas Corleone has the potential to be a great name in the legal thriller genre,” adds the Debut Authors Blog.

Hawaii Book Blog declares, “Questionable characters, murder, money and sex are all great components of a riveting crime novel and Corleone expertly weaves them all into a paradise setting, an undeniable formula of captivating suspense.”

“It’s a very fine first novel. Corleone has a bright future ahead of him. PARADISE really is a winner” concludes Reviewing the Evidence.

While blogs have been busy writing about him, he’s been busy writing on them! Doug has recently guest blogged on Type M for Murder, Murder By 4, Do Some Damage, Suspense Your Disbelief, Buried Under Books, and The Page 69 Test.

He’s also given interviews to Midweek, The Big Thrill, Hawaii Book Blog, Homespun Honolulu, and Associated Content.

On top of all that, he’ll be reading at the Borders at Ward Center in Honolulu on the 22nd, the Borders at Windward Mall in Kaneohe on the 29th, and the Barnes & Noble at the Kahala Mall on June 5th.

Good thing Doug already lives in Hawaii — after all that, we’re sure he’ll need to spend a little time relaxing on the beach!
