Publisher's Summary

Mahu -- a generally negative Hawaiian term for homosexuals -- introduces a unique character to detective fiction. Kimo Kanapa'aka is a handsome, mixed-race surfer living in Honolulu, a police detective confronting his homosexuality in an atmosphere of macho bravado within the police force. A man of intelligence, strength, honesty, resourcefulness, and intense dedication to the people of Hawaii, Kimo is a hard-boiled hero you will never forget. Fast-paced, intricately plotted, thoroughly enjoyable, this is a sexy, surprisingly moving mystery about discovering oneself as much as catching a killer.

Wonderful Example of the Coming Out Experinence

Two things I really really liked about this book. First it wasn't filled with gratuitous sex. The other was the fact that it gave a very authentic depiction of the struggles of man being coming out to his world. It showed the very real challenges to develop a new working relationship with his family that he has always loved but now feels estranged from. Joel Leslie did an awesome job as usual. He is probably the best man to man numerators out there.
