Jack Hemlick was a perfectionist and hated losing at anything. So, when an argument with his sister Kathryn goes too far and she kicks him out of her luxurious home, he decides to take up an offer to spend two weeks at a new island resort in the South Pacific.
Hoping that the break would do them both good, Jack is first whisked to Panama in a private jet and then to the resort in a gigantic helicopter. It seemed that no expense was to be spared as his hosts pulled out all the stops to make sure that he was going to be well looked after.
But once there he soon discovers that everything is almost too good to be true. Why was he invited to spend a vacation at no expense in this tiny island that seems to provide everything anyone would ever want? Who is the enigmatic Dr. Ladmile? And will this trip fix the rift between Jack and Kathryn, or just make the gulf between them even wider?
Jack is about to find out that perfection isn’t always the best.
