Overview

The First Annual Aloha Scavenger Hunt is beginning. Journalist Natalie Seachrist, private investigator Keoni Hewitt, and friends Margie and Dan O`Hara are joining in the fun. Before departing for their Honolulu hotel, Natalie dreams of a film noire whodunit. Immersed in the action, she finds a man’s body lying in a mid-1950s hotel, and watches an elegant woman search an adjacent room. After a murder occurs outside their suite, Natalie advises HPD Lieutenant John Dias that the details eerily parallel her “dream.” Knowing the reliability of her unusual gift, the Lieutenant asks Natalie and Keoni to watch for clues to either death as the hunt continues.  After more visions, Natalie is convinced that the site of her earlier “dream” was in Chinatown and the perpetrator, a woman in a red suit. A false scavenger hunt clue’s allusion to a priceless Kuan Yin statue suggest a cause for the disappearance of a man in the 1950s. Is this the man Natalie envisioned in a narrow hotel hallway? Is his death linked to that of the professor? And what of the false clue’s reference to hidden treasure? Are these coincidences? Or, has Natalie’s visioning revealed a murderer with long hidden secrets?
