Summary: Five-0 heads up the investigation into a serial shooter the media calls the "Honolulu Sniper." A lunatic with a high powered rifle, the "Honolulu Sniper" takes aim at the highways and commuters, successfully eluding Five-0 with each attack. Meanwhile, Danny struggles to cope in the wake of his brother's betrayal, doing his best to hide the wounds from his friends. He's fooling no one, least of all McGarrett. With his brother on the run, the FBI staking out his apartment and an explosive case that nearly gets him and Kono killed, the last thing Danny wants is a complicated relationship with his boss. Steve, of course, doesn't see it that way.
Notes: First of all, special thank yous to kare and creedcascade, who read this in parts and encouraged me to keep going. And especially to HCat, who hangs in with me on everything I write. I dragged her into this fandom and she's been more than a very good friend. (She also is responsible for the stellar beta job on this too.)
This is actually the first Five-0 story I started and it was never supposed to become quite this epic. I started it before the last two episodes of first season aired. Then when they did, it blew everything out of the water character wise for me in regards to Danny. I shelved it, but came back to it, would shelve it again but finally decided to finish it. It's important to note, I wrote it the way I originally intended even after finding out the Jameson was in with Wo Fat and Danny was sleeping with Rachel. I also used some information from some deleted scenes that we got in the DVDs.
This is written to take place directly after Ep 18- Loa Aloha.
