Summary
The island of East Pukapuka lies in the path of a tsunami that will kill everyone but Butter, a little girl more worried about the lives of the injured animals she cares for than her own. Butter is rescued by a Loggerhead sea turtle with cosmic consciousness who carries her away on his back. As she and her exhausted saviour begin to sink, the girl is plucked out of the sea by the owner of a salvage boat who is thrilled, at first, to have found a genuine "turtle-girl" hybrid. Meanwhile, downhill racer Dante Wheeler heads to Polynesia, where he encounters Ophelia, a beautiful policewoman who reluctantly agrees to transport him to East Pukapuka. Jope and Ratu, a pair of bumbling pirates, steal a vessel laden with cocaine. They are hotly pursued by the drug-runners' hit man Albino Paul, the descendant of cannibals, whose goal is to reclaim his heritage
