The problem with this series has always been that author Plakcy lulls you into the everyday life of Hawaii cop turned detective Kimo Kanapa'aka while giving you enough of a rope to wrap around your neck in terms of a new mystery to solve. That's where he gets you--simultaneously unwrapping Kimo's latest love life escapade--now with his should-be husband Mike (the Firefighter) Riccardi and their children--around something truly horrifying snorkeling around the islands.
This one ratchets up both aspects of Kimo's life (narrated by him) in such a way that it's like a fuse has been lit on at both ends. His relationship with Mike is not front and center here, but rather it's one that features their twins (and their mother), foster son, his and Mike's parents, and a small group of friends and colleagues that form a unique nuclear family.
That his chief sidekick here is his detective partner Ray Donne, both now on special assignment with the FBI, brings in more of a close-knit feel to a mystery which unravels in increasingly horrifying ways that take very unexpected turns.
That the mystery is solved and the chase which begins in earnest eventually winds up with a satisfying but not exceptionally defined end to this series is a testimony to Plakcy's ability to keep you guessing until the very end.
Otherwise, I enjoyed another riveting investigation and spending time with Kimo and his world. I will continue to read further books in this (and other) series and look forward to Neil's next release. I only hope the editing is better...
