From the prolific author, and screenwriter, of "The Searchers"  and "The Unforgiven"  comes a unique entry in his extensive body of work. Rarely listed in even extensive collections of his written works, "Deep Water Island" is notable for being both a mystery and romance set in the Hawaiian Islands and follows the journey of a young American woman who seeks to reclaim her grandfather's stolen island estate.
