book | 1991

A group of British tourists set out from a congested Heathrow to their package holiday. Among the tourists is a former priest and lecturer in theology who is paying a final visit to his dying aunt.

Hawaii, and more particularly the high-rise tourist ghetto of Waikiki, is the stage on which the fortunes of the priest and a  range of characters cross and occasionally collide.
