Storm Kayamas high school friend, Tanner Williams, wants her to go to Molokai to make sure his ex-wife is taking good care of his son, a newly diagnosed diabetic. Storm soon finds that Tanner has bigger problems than he let on. A series of misadventures follow, which makes for an OK novel.

Ms. Atkinson delivers a very twisty mystery with excellent Hawaiian cultural references. Her local dialogue is spot on -- not overdone as in some books set in Hawaii. Her portrayal of small-town Molokai life and the struggle for local people to make a living despite big development really hits close to home for so many.
Another good book in this series. I am enjoying watching the development of Storm's relationships with Ian, her family, and herself. I also really enjoy the elements of Hawaiian history and folklore.

I would have rated this book at 2 1/2 stars if that was possible.

It shows that the author has taken care in her choice of language, but her concern might have gone overboard. The words are too dry, bordering on being clinical. It was counterproductive to building suspense in a mystery, and the story never really does flow. I found myself battling with the diction too often to be curious about the story's mystery.

It is a novel. The author tries to come across as writing it as well researched but that is not the case. However, it makes for a good laugh if you know Molokai. Since mysticism is trendy today, the author has included some Hawaiian religion in the murder plot.

Light reading if you know the island and want to figure out who inspired her characters.
