I really liked this book. I found the introduction on hula dancing fascinating. I hadn't realized that the movements were so symbolic. And I really have admired Leila Kahana's character - she's smart, sexy, confident, etc. - though I have to admit (without going into too much detail and giving away spoilers) that I was disappointed in her actions regarding Seymour. Other than that, the story is really well-written, the development of the mystery was well-paced, and all the Hawaiian cultural insights were really interesting. This is the third book I've read in this series, and I've enjoyed them all. I don't think its necessary to read the books in order to enjoy them, but you definitely get a better understanding of the different characters, relationships, and history if you do. I listened to the Audible audio edition narrated by Jane Boyer. I really like her narration. She has a great voice - its a little lower and she's able to pull off both male and female characters very well. I highly recommend this series if you like reading about Hawaii, mysteries, or crime novels. I can't wait for the next one in the series.

Over three and a half hours on this book is devoted to excerpts from other books by the same author. Very very lightweight and full of repetitions when you can actually listen to the book on the cover!
