|Plot Summary of Fires of Eden|
|"Multi-millionaire Byron Trumbo is hot to sell his Hawaiian resort, Mauna Pele, to a group of Japanese businessmen whom he has invited to the island. However, the ancient goddess who rules the island has other ideas--including vengeance--and the strange and mysterious events that transpire on the island, in and around the resort--including murder--parallel events that happened years before when Mark Twain visited the island, barely managing to escape with his life. As the business deal nears completion, the prehistoric Hawaiian deities set off a volcano and attack the guests in force."
Gary L. Pullman, Resident Scholar
