Storm Kayama and her partner Ian Hamlin are excited to get away from Honolulu for the weekend. While they will both be doing work on this trip, it is a much needed break from the routine. Storm is supposed to check on an old friendas diabetic son. This should be easy, but when the boyas mother, Jenny Williams, turns up dead, Storm must find the boy before the murderers do.
In the meantime, Ian is investigating the disappearance of Brock Liu, the son of an Oaahu shipping magnate. Are Jenny Williamsa death and Brock Liuas disappearance related? Or are they both linked to an older unsolved crime?
