However, suddenly there’s a very real possibility that his lady love Zee will be departing the island forever. And when a young student commits suicide, and a girlfriend-abusing thug starts spewing vicious threats, J.W. seriously considers a temporary escape from paradise. But it’s a failed trio of attempts on his own life that ultimately propels him off-island—and onto the trail of a stalker.
