Pipe Dreams: 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 facade.

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.
