My opinion of this excerpt is "Wow!" This is a book with a bombshell of a beginning set in an exotic location with an unlikely set of circumstances brought to light. Few tourists would feel that they create anything but happiness for Hawaiian natives, and to know that poverty, drugs, and resentment linger in the backstreets is an unexpected twist of true historical fact.Review:
The story starts off very dramatically and slowly but steadily rackets up the suspense. Charlie has the possibility of being a sympathetic character who is doing terrible things for what he feels are good reasons.
