Murder and intrigue descend upon the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawai'i. A family on the island has been charged with guarding the bones and burial site of King Kamehameha the First's favorite wife, Queen Ka'ahumanu, for generations. Ka'ahumanu, who after Kamehameha's death in 1819, co-ruled the newly consolidated Hawaiian Kingdom as kuhina nui, or Queen Regent with Kamehameha's son Liholiho, and brought sweeping social and political change to the islands. Years after her death and in accordance with the ancient custom afforded to all chiefs and chiefesses of the highest rank, her bones were secreted away to their final resting place by a trusted kahu or guardian, never to be seen or disturbed for all eternity. Now the matriarch of the family needs to turn over this awesome responsibility to one of her daughters. To do this, she gathers her children from far and near. However, her decision splits the family as long simmering jealousies and greed leads to several murders!
