He soon devises a plan to get the goods once and for all on who is responsible for the school tragedy, the shootings, the killings and the case from the 70’s. And it involves a shocking figure.

He also has a situation with his brother, who is hear to testify in a court case before going back to jail. He collapses and is found to have a brain tumor and rushed to surgery. It may help explain his actions and Koa is doing everything he can to help him and maybe get him freed.

Another great thrilling Hawaiian novel with a great character in Koa, a man with a heart of gold, who tries to do what’s right by people. The story starts off strong and is a great ride until the climactic ending.
