Hawaii is palm trees, black sand, and blue water - but for policewoman Lei Texeira, there's a dark side to paradise. Lei has overcome a scarred past to make a life for herself as a cop in the sleepy Big Island town of Hilo. On a routine patrol she finds two murdered teenagers - one of whom she'd recently busted. With its echoes of her own past, the murdered girl's harsh life and tragic death affect Lei deeply. She becomes obsessed - even as the killer is drawn to Lei's intensity, feeding off her vulnerabilities and toying with her sanity. Despite her obsession with the case and fear that she's being stalked, Lei finds herself falling in love for the first time. Steaming volcanoes, black sand beaches, and shrouded fern forests are the backdrop to Lei's quest for answers - and the stalker is closer than she can imagine, as threads of the past tangle in her future. Lei is determined to find the killer - but he knows where to find her first.

Like being there
I love Tony Neal's books and would never walk away from a copy of one of her books, no matter the form. But her narrated books are extra special. By choosing a woman who is from the area and is familiar with the dialects really brought it alive for me. Between her descriptions and the native voice using the native dialects when needed and regular American English when required, l felt like I was right there,th e fly on the wall.
I wouldn't and couldn't compare 's. Neal's books with anything on the market today. Few novels come out about the Hawaiian Islands, and fewer still mysteries. Than you have a great kick as female cop who acknowledges she is not perfect and has her priorities in order. I'll continue reading and listening to Ms Neal's books as long as she keeps writing them.
