When two anthropologists disagree, it's unusual to find one of them murdered. Penny Spring is convinced that the survivor, Giles, is innocent of the killing, but Toby Glendower and the Hawaii police are not so sure. Soon the two friends, a family of expatriate English, a bereaved young woman and a Hawaiian nationalist are all involved in a search for the century's biggest archaeological discovery.

I couldn't put this one down! Spent half the night and the rest of my morning finishing the book! Loved every suspense filled minute! The sleuths, Dr, Penny Spring and Sir Toby Glendower are an Anthropologist and Archaeologist team with wit and a somewhat sarcastic edge at times. I enjoyed them immensely and can't wait to read my 5th one in their adventures!
