Publisher's Summary

Inspector Ralph Houston looked across the beautiful Oahu Beach and watched the man enjoying himself with a glamorous woman who was falling all over him. It had taken Inspector Ralph more than 15 years to find him and yet, when he saw him there being entertained by the beautiful woman, he realized he would be happier to kill him with his bare hands instead of trying to prosecute him.

Inspector Ralph came to accost him directly to see if he would say something to incriminate himself before he brought out his ace card. But Ralph also knew that this man should not be taken for granted. He was not as coy or sweet or innocent as he looks. This man was not just extremely intelligent but also extremely dangerous. He did not look one bit dangerous, which actually enhanced his menacing nature, especially to those who knew his true nature.

The Oahu beach stretched across the horizon with the azure sky casting a beautiful blue color to the waters of the ocean. The waves swished gently against the sandy beach. The sunlight shimmered through the waters making the ocean look like a bed of glittering diamonds. Even though the sun was out in its splendor, many people were sprawled out under their colorful umbrella relaxing and having fun. Although the place was a little crowded, the fact that everyone was so engrossed in his or her own world rendered a strange kind of peace and privacy to all.

He did not even notice inspector Ralph walking towards him. He was busy making out under a broad, bright beach umbrella with his glamorous girlfriend. It was only when Ralph reached his head and looked down at him that he saw him and gave him a startled look that lasted for an instant.

If Ralph did not know his background, he might have easily missed that surprised look. But he knew the man did not expect to see him here. Yet, Ralph had to give him credit for recovering almost instantaneously.

He pushed the girl away, got up....
