Jake and Amanda Bannon had planned to unplug in Oahu for a much-needed vacation, but the mai tais will have to wait—they have a kidnapping to solve.

Jake’s got a winning smile and a head for business strategy. His wife, Amanda, has a quick wit and a knack for sensing things before they happen. The Bannons may look like the perfect picture of a power couple, but when Jake and Amanda hang up their BlackBerries for a week of R & R in Hawaii, they never expect to need an arsenal of firearms, knives, and climbing gear to finish out their trip’s adventures.

As the couple clinks glasses on a breezy lanai overlooking the Pacific, terror is brewing on the Big Island. High in the steep jungle mountains, the Bannons’ friends from back home in Canada have crossed paths with a fate worse than they could ever have imagined. Depressed since her parents’ divorce, teen Taylor Wright met a fellow brooding soul online, Carlos, and agreed to arrange a meeting with him during her family’s Hawaiian vacation. Now Taylor, along with her mother and stepfather, have vanished.

When Jake and Amanda receive an alarming call from Taylor’s father, they’re on the case. From shootouts to death-defying vertical climbs, the Bannons embark on a rescue mission to find Taylor and reveal the dark motives of Carlos and his voodoo cult.
