Nancy travels to Hawaii as a research assistant for Dr. Quigley Kim to determine why the population of native caterpillars has exploded. She runs into the Mapu’s who loan her a jeep and give her directions to Dr. Kim’s camp. The Hardy Boys, on a separate covert operation, are also visiting the Mapu’s and staying at the family’s cultural immersion center.Before leaving, Nancy is warned to avoid the secretive Hilihili research compound of Malachi Craven; as some believe it’s linked to the legend of Kane Okala or “the rough-skinned man,” where years ago, a man was sacrificed to the volcano. He escaped from the volcano but he was scarred for life with a frightening appearance. When Nancy arrives at Camp Quigley, she sees a monster ravaging the camp and soon discovers that Dr. Quigley is missing! Could the monster she saw be Kane Okala? As Nancy explores the island, she finds more than she bargained for: beetles are damaging the island’s ecology; are there ties between the beetle and caterpillar problems, and the secret compound? Could Malachi Craven be behind it all? Or is Kane Okala back for revenge! As her adventure unfolds, Nancy discovers the Kapu or “forbidden” cave and suspects that something mysterious is hidden behind the Tiki Centennials.
