A trauma doctor takes her own life after having a traditional Hawaiian lomilomi session. It’s a baffling suicide murder that has Detectives Reef Kahili and Kalani Rogers running around in circles. Did Hawaiian and western medicine clash?

Or is it just another thing that's out of balance on the island? Passions are running high. Pele, the fire goddess and mother of Hawai’i is venting her rage, pouring forth rivers of molten lava and flattening everything in her fury. Everyone has their hands full.

She's not the only one arousing smoldering passions. Traditional lomi person, Liliuokalani White catches Kalani's eye. She’s about to turn him inside out and spark a series of events for him.

While Pele's making new ground, Kalani’s dealing with old ground and the ghost of his father who disappeared when he was ten. Where did he go and is Kalani ready to deal with the truth about him? Can he trust Lily with his past and what he's hiding under his easygoing nature?

Then Reef’s hanai son Akuna’s mother, Pili arrives back on-island. But what’s she up to this time and how does it involve Akuna? And Patrick Henry? She’s living up to her name—trouble…

‘Ohana, they’re all intertwined, but who’s a killer and who’s a healer? Or both?
