The second day of the free Can You Hula like Hilo Hattie promotion has arrived—beckoned like a mound of banana-mango shave ice on a 90-degree day.
Hula marks our first official—paying—case as private investigators. My best friend, Rey, and her cousin, JJ, have been hired to find out what a millionaire’s pretty, young wife is up to. Unfortunately, before we discover what that is, she’s found swimming in the ocean . . . face down.
Our case takes us to a variety of places, some dingy, some dangerous. We meet gang members, drug dealers, and a druggie (who we attempt to get back on the straight and narrow). JJ also meets a dark and handsome stranger who fixates on her.
A few bodies cross our paths, too, and we scramble to piece together a rather bizarre puzzle. It’s a wild ride, as Rey just said (with a slap to the back and a theatrical wink), or madcap as JJ just threw out (with a thumb’s up). <LOL>
