Jack Ferrell is sailing off a remote Hawaiian coastline when a strange fog encompasses his craft. He hears a distress call and answers. Arriving at the scene, he encounters a beautiful young woman named Lisa who is frantic because her brother has gone overboard. Though he arrives too late to help the brother, he is able to rescue the family pet.
Jack enlists the help of his best friend Robert after finding an unusual artifact during his rescue mission. They put together an expedition to further explore the area around the mysterious find. A team is quickly gathered, and the expedition gets underway.
When Lisa asks to join the foray, Jack is happy to include her, but Robert, the expedition financier, is less thrilled because he is afraid she will cause Jack’s attention to stray; to wander from the scientific exploration.
A suspenseful tale set deep within caves on the beautiful, rugged Hawaiian coast, I enjoy the way in which the story rapidly unfolds. The historical detail is fascinating and fits into the story exceptionally well. I thought the descriptive detail is appropriate, except for the scenes that seemed to be an inventory of many of the items washed up and gathered by the small tribe throughout the centuries. I would have preferred a more concise summary with more action, less discovery. All in all, though, the story was quite exciting, and I positively loved the bittersweet ending.
