When Kate MacKinnon hears that Nikki Trixx, a Waikiki prostitute, has been found murdered on a sacred Hawaiian he‘iau, she is appalled. To Hawaiians, a heiau luakini is the most sacred of shrines, for it is there that their ancestors offered up human sacrifices. Kate knows there will be trouble—from politicians, Hawaiian sovereignty activists, and racists—each group accusing the others of the desecration.
Near Julia’s body, Kate discovers a Holy card titled “Pride” —a strange, terrifying creation straight out of Hiëronymus Bosch. As Kate struggles to solve the mystery of a Waikiki serial killer, we find ourselves caught in a carnival fun house mirror. Assumptions glimmer, alter, and magically disappear. When Kate is finally rescued from peril, we learn that friends and enemies, and the innocent and the guilty, are not always who they seem.
