Amanda is even friends with a famous actress, who pledges to do anything to find her friend. But it falls to the retired NYPD detective and private investigator Karl Standt to go to the Hawaiian island and fix the botched, seamy investigation. He finds a web of murky connections in the tropical paradise, hints of corruption that eventually exposes the island's underside.
Joining him on Kauai is a girlfriend and reporter for Slate magazine. Together, along with Standt's hacker buddy, they are immersed in an atmospheric, equatorial drama to uncover the elusive evidence of what happened to an All American girl.
