Against the law
In a vicious crime that rocks the fiftieth state, an assassin claims the life of Hawai'i's governor and a beautiful call girl in the flamboyant politician's luxury hotel suite. Lending an even more horrific aspect to the act, the killer savages the governor's body with the bloody trappings of the island's ancient warrior rituals. The case is quickly solved - or so it seems. The accused is Peter Maikai, a wealthy landowner and a charismatic leader in the grassroots revival movement for native Hawai'ian pride. It's the easiest slam dunk in the history of the Honolulu prosecuting attorney's office. But deputy prosecuting attorney Dan Carrier detects holes in what is supposed to be a case of seamless perfection - a case that, for him, becomes shockingly personal. For when Dan was a boy, Peter Maikai had been his protector and mentor. The relationship ended bitterly when Dan fell passionately in love with Peter Maikai's cherished daughter, Lily.
Before Peter Maikai can be brought to trial, he dies, leaving behind a string of startling revelations that raise more questions than they answer. To prove Peter Maikai innocent, Dan initiates an unofficial investigation and, with Maikai's daughter's help, digs into a shocking series of cover-ups. Secret after secret is unearthed, each more astonishing and lethal than the last, each implicating important and powerful people. Peter Maikai's daughter travels to Maui, unaware that she possesses the one piece of damning evidence the killer will do anything to destroy....
