    Edgar Allan "Poe" Rutherford didn't think twice when he took his fiancé's case. After all, Detective Alana Hu had known the victim since childhood. Besides, the evidence is easy to decode: all signs point to the victim's estranged husband. As Poe works to get the killer behind bars, he can't help but be distracted by his fast-approaching wedding. But Maui beaches have a knack for luring people into a false sense of security, and Poe's error could extract the highest cost imaginable. After all, you can't have a wedding without the bride.
