One Big Itch is set in Honolulu, the whimsical tropical city that also is haunted, as Detective John 'Oluhana Maalaea Spyer well knows. Spyer happens to be one haunted man. Too bad Spyer is a hapa haole (ha-pa how-lee) a half white, who only half listens when Madam Pele, Hawaii's mercurial fire goddess, warns him off the Randolph Haverhill case.
No decent Hawaiian ever says no to an old friend, which makes Spyer the quintessential "soft-boiled" detective. Despite Madam P.'s warning, Spyer investigates the murder of his childhood pal Randy Haverhill, opening his own psychic wounds and putting the love of his mainland girlfriend Maya to the test.
Spyer is soon privy to a frightening tale of obsessive loves. Trouble is, Randy Haverhill became too popular with the ladies for his own good. One of Randy's crazed lovers shot Randy on his doorstep. That's just about the only thing Randy HAverhill's current and ex wives agree upon.
So why do the police insist in the notion that Randy was murdered by his own son?
