Overview

When the discovery of a white man's body at a sacred ancient Hawaiian burial site enrages members of a radical Hawaiian separatist group, Honolulu Police Officer K. O. Ogden is dragged into a web of greed, deception, and misplaced loyalty as she tries to find the killer in this thrilling murder mystery. Portraying a Hawaii rarely seen by tourists, this whimsical novel addresses the volatile and serious issue of Hawaiian sovereignty and introduces such "Hawaiian" characters as the savvy street hustlers of Honolulu, the rural stewards of Hawaiian Homelands, and the pidgin-speaking cops all over the islands. With a lushness that one can almost breathe, this suspenseful whodunit takes readers on a gripping, tropical adventure that is driven by a looming threat of loss as the very real rift between Hawaiian separatists and the U. S. government is explored.
