Lani is trapped when a school of sharks gather to feed between her location beyond the breakers and the beach. When she is finally able to come ashore she finds that the meal the sharks were feeding on was a who rather than a what. Based on the evidence provided it looks like the victim was murdered prior to becoming shark food. Luke and Lani set out to find the killer but during the course of the investigation Lani learns a surprising secret about Luke that may change everything she believes to be true. (Summary via Amazon)
Set in Hawaii you would think that everything would be quiet and beautiful. Nope, not for Lani Pope. She is a very head strong, intelligent petite woman who has always wanted to be a cop like her brothers and father. Instead she is part of the WSO and very good at her job.
In this book Kathi Daley starts it out with ferocious tiger sharks circling Lani while on a surfing excursion and Sandy, her dog barking at the shoreline trying to get to her. After the sharks decide to leave, Sandy brings Lani a surprise from the beach, a human arm! Lani automatically knows by the tattoo that is a new food truck owner that has been stirring up trouble on the island. And if those two things aren't enough to make her day terrible she ends up late for work and is stuck at the family pool. A child leaves a present for her in the pool, a torpedo ( use your imagination) and has to clean it up. Ewwwwwwww!
The arm found leads Lani, Luke, and her senior friends to start yet another murder investigation. But this one may put Lani at her breaking point.
Love this series and can't wait to see what happens next with Lani and Luke.
