261 Pages

Nestled in a tropical rainforest on the edge of a volcano, the Honeycreeper Lodge is an out-of-the-way B&B on the Big Island of Hawai’i, where visitors come to relax and commune with nature.

Yet despite this idyllic setting, a series of anonymous threats have put the lodge’s proprietor on edge—and spurred his ex-wife to hire private eye Noelani Lee to find out who’s trying to destroy their business.

But as Noelani begins what she believes is a routine investigation into coercion and intimidation, murder also checks in—and leaves her wondering if a guest’s gruesome death and the lodge’s ordeals are related.

To find the killer, Noelani will wade through a roiling caldera of motives and lies ... all while the restless fire goddess Pele prepares to unleash her ground-shaking fury on these mere mortals.

Both are sources of pride for Tom, and of embarrassment for the respective institutions of higher learning.

When he’s not fantasizing about retiring and opening a beachside bar in Costa Rica, Tom lives a real suburban existence—complete with a pool and a fridge full of beer—in Henderson, Nevada, with his wife, Donna; and a basset hound named Molli.
