A yacht construction company executive is murdered with a shark teeth-mounted native weapon while participating, in Polynesian costume, to a well-organized Hawaian war reenactment. While Steve bitterly criticizes his untidy house-guest Danno, they investigate motives in the firm and environmental opposition bordering on eco-terrorism, suspects including his partner and his wife.
