With some $200 million sunk into a real estate development plan in Kauai, the investment partners have a lot to lose if Peter Roosevelt succeeds in stopping the project for the sake of preserving Hawaii’s rich and exotic environment. When Roosevelt is found dead in his home, a suspect is quickly arrested—and becomes the latest challenge, and one of the toughest, for Honolulu’s top criminal defense attorney, Pancho McMartin. The main obstacles in proving Wayne Takei innocent are tough to overcome: His gun is the murder weapon, and he has no alibi to help clear his name. Lies and deception quickly plague the proceedings, with Pancho and his team running out of time to save their client from life in prison, in this fourth novel of David Myles Robinson’s increasingly popular legal thriller series. The parallel plot lines follow Pancho’s progress on the case along with the background movements of a slew of suspicious characters, keeping the suspense high as the evidence begins to stack up but substantial proof remains just out of reach
