Paradise swirls with deadly currents.

She has to avenge a champion.

He'll kill to come out on top.

The darkest of motives drive a murderer with multiple axes to grind, and Lei must follow her instincts into new territory even as her husband, Michael Stevens, struggles with heartbreak of another kind.

"Another fantastic mystery featuring Lei Texeira and the wonderful, deftly drawn characters populating the Lei Crime Series." Emily Kimelman, author of the Sydney Rye Mystery Series

  • The best fun since Magnum!

    This series of crime novels just keeps getting better. The characters and settings make you wish you were there and friends with Lei and Mike and family. Very realistic and human. No super hero nonsense, just real people with all that goes along with that. If you haven’t already read these novels, get started now. You won’t be sorry!
  • Landlubber conversion

    I am not a strong swimmer and I know my limitations. As such, though I love the beach and being by the ocean on the Atlantic side of the world, I would love to go to Hawaii to taste the culture there. It took me awhile to appreciate this novel, but Toby Neal fills in enough background to bring it to life. As a former English teacher and British Literature Major, the devolvement of characters to pidgen is particularly fun. I have had students register "pidgin" as their first language on registration forms for school. Very good read!
  • Makes me want to head to Hawaii

    Loved the book. I love the beach and would love to see the surfing in Hawaii. I loved the web she weaved. It was really good!
