Edgar Allan “Poe” Rutherford is having a bad month. He lost his job in the lousy economy, caught his girlfriend cheating on him, and his 12 hour flight to Maui to visit his best friend Foxx was plagued by rotten weather, lousy food, false terrorist attacks, screaming babies, and a snoring man in front of him who insisted on keeping his seat reclined the entire length of the flight. But things quickly go from bad to worse when he finally starts what was supposed to be a much deserved vacation.
Foxx’s girlfriend Lauren, a world-renowned artist, is brutally murdered at a crowded art show, and all the evidence points to Foxx as the guilty party. Everyone on the island thinks he did it, including the sexy police detective whose toes Poe stepped on, literally, at the art show. It’s up to Poe to prove his friend’s innocence, or Foxx is likely to spend the rest of his days behind bars.
The possible suspects? An eccentric bunch to say the least, including a famous painter who thinks he’s the reincarnation of a long-dead pharaoh and a sculptor who’s living in a tree house because his third wife took everything in their divorce settlement. Can Poe discover the identity of the real killer and more importantly, will he ever convince the beautiful detective to forgive him for stepping on her toes?
