Polly, I love the Lucas Davenport series as well, although it's been a while. I'll check out this newest one.
I listened to the audio book for Moloka'i and loved the narrator's reading of it, her character's voices added such a beautiful richness to the story. One of the best audio books I've listened to in a long time.
This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
