Storm Kayama needs to build her clientele, so when surf promoter Marty Barstow’s wife walks into her new law office, Storm agrees to represent her. It looks like a bitter divorce situation, but Storm feels for Stephanie, who seems lonely and frightened.

When Stephanie’s son Ben, a promising surfer, invites her to O‘ahu’s North Shore to watch a surfing contest, Storm jumps at the chance. Not only will it be a thrill to observe the meet, but Storm will also have the opportunity to watch a distant cousin compete. Nahoa Pi‘ilani has grown from a mischievous kid to a surfer of international renown, and he seems to have put the trouble that once brewed between their families behind him.

Then a child delivers a package to Nahoa. Inside the plain wrapper is an ancient Hawaiian weapon, a wooden club encircled with shark’s teeth. Storm recognizes the lei o manō. It’s a threat, a call to battle.

Soon, as if she were in the green room—the underwater space where tons of churning water can imprison a surfer—Storm is buffeted and disoriented by local legend, greed, and cutthroat competition, and must confront a killer and a haunting incident from her past.
