"Enough smoothly crafted suspense to keep readers turning pages long after dark."—The Seattle Times

Beyond the sparkling Hawiian beaches, masked by the deceptive beauty of the rainforest, evil awaits sixteen-year-old Michael Sundquist and his mother, Katharine, and anthropologist who has come to the Islands to study the unusual skeletal remains unearthed on the volcanic flanks of Halekala, Maui.
Yet far below the black depths of the Pacific a mysterious substance snakes through undiscovered fissures in the ocean floor, as nature itself seems to portend the terror to come.
Then, with the sudden, unexpected death of Michael's friend, a disturbing truth dawns: the corporation that is funding Katherine's dig has a far greater investment than she ever imagined—an investment in medical terror. And her son may be part of their hideous grand plan. . . .
"A suspenseful thriller . . . provocative . . . Nicely done, indeed."—Kirkus Reviews
"Classic Saul . . . A potent brew."—Publishers Weekly
