About the Book
Andy Perry, female foreign student advisor at the University of Hawaii, Hilo, loves her job, but not the university bureaucracy she must deal with. She discovers an attempt by leaders at the top to turn the foreign student program into a cash cow that will fill the pockets of certain administrators and turn the foreign exchange program into an elitist and dangerous offering for visiting students from Asia and the Pacific. With the help of one of her mature foreign students, a close colleague on the faculty, and a principled dean, Andy Perry exposes corruption in the form of a complicated bribery deal and helps to expel the bureaucrats scheming to exploit the university.
