From the author of the Malone Mystery series comes smart, sassy, Los Angeles private investigator T. J. O'Sullivan. Originally from New Zealand, T. J. has the accent and the attitude to go with it.

When Los Angeles private investigator T. J. O'Sullivan travels to Hawaii to track down a client's missing daughter, it seems like a simple missing person case. O'Sullivan is excited at the prospect of mixing a little business with some pleasure on the beaches of sunny Waikiki. But as soon as she arrives in Honolulu, the case starts to turn into anything but routine. In fact, it becomes a regular mare's nest of lies, extortion, and murder.

T. J. learns that her client's daughter hasn't actually gone missing. Instead, she has been abducted and is being held for ransom. To make matters worse, while T. J. tries to get a lead on the daughter's whereabouts, she has to fend off the sexual advances of her womanizing client. Then her client is murdered, and his body discovered in her hotel room, putting T. J. in the frame for a murder charge. Now she must solve at least one murder to prove her own innocence, resolve a criminal conspiracy involving her dead client's own family and employees, and save herself from the clutches of some serious bad guys who want her dead.
