The answer seemed simple for Grace Rolston when she dropped the .38 revolver into her travel bag and retreated to Hawaii. It was time to escape Californian demons, abandon her philandering husband, and say goodbye to the life of a canary trapped in a cage.

Demons have also invaded the life of Lee Corbet, and he too has retreated to Hawaii, hoping to jettison the past memories that eat away at his soul.

Grace and Lee collide, but love is careless; it will take these two innocents, toss them into a typhoon of passion and emotion, and then rip them apart, all for entertainment's sake.

When a bird flies westward, Hawaii is the end of the line.

Review quote

"Tarantino meets Hiaasen on the wrong side of Honolulu in Careless Love, a high-spirited, high-octane thrill ride from Steve Zettler." Jon Clinch, author of Finn and Marley

"Zettler's story is sweeping, yes-yet he crafts it with such intimacy that I devoured, endured, delighted, suffered all his characters' beauty and ugliness with each word." Christopher Chambers, author of Scavenger, and Black Panther: Tales of Wakanda

"Rough and profane with a big heart, this is a love story like no other -and a harrowing reflection on the Vietnam War and those still living with its consequences." Jason Rekulak, author of The Impossible Fortress

"Careless Love is a powerful, can't put-it-down novel that will bring tears to even the most callous reader's eyes. Steve Zettler tells the gripping tale of a young artist whose dying mother drops a bombshell: the artist's father was not who she'd said he was. What follows is a relentless search to learn about the true father by traveling to the Hawaiian resort where the artist's parents first met and uncovering, bit by bit, the heart-wrenching, bittersweet details of their deep, ill-fated love. Vividly written, Careless Love depicts a passionate couple struggling to overcome scars of the past, endure betrayals and violence, and run away in time to escape tragic fate. Careless Love is a zinger of a tale that will stay with readers long after they've finished the last line." Merry Jones, award winning author of Child's Play and The Woman in the Cupboard

"Steve Zettler's Careless Love illuminates the lives of others to understand the lies they tell themselves. To know the truth of another is to navigate the darkness of lies and untruths but we yearn as voyeurs to live vicariously and viciously through knowing who someone else is." Adam Byatt, author of Mount Pleasant
