More About This Book

Overview

In 1959 on the Island of Kaua'i, a growing panic is stretching its mysterious shadow across the Hawaiian island chain to the village of Kekaha on Kaua'i's western shore.

Young boys are vanishing and many of the native islanders, specifically the ranchers of the Forbidden Isle, believe that the man-eating spirits of legend are to blame.

The two local authorities, Chief Constable Kekoa Tabura and his gullible cousin, Polunu, are forced to duty by the unrest of the villagers. Their investigation leads them island-hopping then into the lush Waimea jungle and eventually to the doorsteps of intriguing and sinister islanders who spin tales of macabre happenings from eighteen years before.

It is then that our constables learn that Pearl Harbor-and its own story of destruction-was only the beginning of more immediate and gruesome realities...

Born in 1956 in Orange, California, W. D. "Bill" Jordan has been a Southern California boy his whole life. Raised in Garden Grove then migrating to suburban
Westminster in 1968, he attended Fountain Valley High School then studied Drafting at Golden West Junior College.

Married young at 18, and raised with commitment to the word responsible, Bill went to work. He has spent the majority of his life in the roofing industry, primarily as a contractor with nearly thirty years filled with his first of many hobbies, coaching girl's softball; climbing the ranks to the High School and Club levels.

Currently, Bill is enjoying his three wonderful adult children and five grandchildren, while residing in the beautiful hills of Whittier with his wife and love of the past 13-years.

Come join him as he is enthusiastically consumed in this new journey of putting to paper the warped visions that have cluttered his head for all these years.
