Travel writer Debra Bokur makes her fiction debut with The Fire Thief, a police procedural mystery that explores the nuanced culture and captivating beauty of Hawaii via its two very different lead characters: a veteran police captain and the granddaughter of one of Hawaii's most respected spiritual leaders. A Maui fisherman discovers the body of a teenage boy floating among the lava rocks. Police captain Walter Aakai hopes it is simply a surfing accident. But a grisly discovery near the crime scene hints at ritualism, so Walter decides to call in detective Kali Mahoe. The granddaughter of one of Hawaii's most respected spiritual leaders and historians, and on her own path to becoming a "Kahu," Kali applies her background to the hunt for the killer. The murder investigation is hampered by a sudden rash of solar panel thefts, a related assault, and repeated sightings of an eerie, faceless entity. When a second body washes ashore, Kali fears the strange killer may strike again.
