This book is set in Hawaii. The main protagonist is Chief Detective Koa who is trying to avoid politics and solve crimes.
The murder of two invisible, off the grid people leads Koa down political paths he normally avoids at all costs. Holding a secret of his own, Koa, does his best to bring justice to all. When he discovers some of the mysterious victims secrets, he finds that Alice’s rabbit hole holds nothing over the spiraling plot he discovers.
The author paints a somewhat different picture of Hawaii. Generally speaking shows such as Hawaii 50 show sparkling beaches and beautiful people. McCaw shows that there is poverty, politics and crime hidden under the ubiquitous leis.
I enjoyed the book and Koa’s implacable tenacity.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
