Lei Crime, Book 2

Toby Neal

The island of Kaua`i is remote jungle, golden beaches and ancient culture—but transients are disappearing in paradise, and only Detective Lei Texeira notices.

Lei transfers to the island of Kaua`i, where she uncovers a pattern of disappearances that may be related to a bizarre cult—or is it just one madman at work? In Lei's world, everyone is guilty until proven innocent.

In the midst of the biggest case sleepy Kaua`i has ever seen, Lei must also untangle the mysteries of her heart and discover who she loves.

“I love any stories about Hawaii and would love to visit there again. The island lore and customs is very interesting. The characters in this story were entertaining. Lei's love interest and romance was enjoyable. I will not give away her secret so you have to read the book to get the answers to all of your questions.”

“A friend recommended this book and she was right! really enjoyed it and it kept moving along! if you enjoy mysteries this was a good one.... a fun read, great characters! ”

“Toby Neal hits it out of the park with this latest Lei Texeira Crime Thriller! Against the mystical backdrop of Kauai Lei finds a cancer growing in the heart of the Garden Island. Readers will also enjoy seeing a sexier side of Lei as she recovers from her failed engagement with a bit of new romance. I found this novel to be riveting and could not put it down! I'm hungry for more of the series! ”
