1953, Hawaii. WWII vet Byrd is thrown off his stateside police force after an "incident" with a suspect. Having nowhere else to go, Byrd turns to his Army buddy, Mo Kalama, a detective in Hawaii. He now spends his days drinking tropical concoctions and his nights helping Mo with cases that fall just beyond the jurisdiction of the police. And in Byrd's Hawaii, the supernatural manifestations of the islands' myths and legends lie just around every corner.
Byrd and Mo are hired to locate the mistress of the island's notorious drug lord, Bishop Masaki. The good news is they've already found the girl. The bad news is she's dead. The really bad news is that her body has mysteriously disappeared without a trace. The detectives scramble to stay ahead of the game as the true identity of the dead girl is uncovered and the terrifying secret of her disappearance is revealed.
