**WINNER** 2015 Silver Medal Winner
Best Mystery / Thriller e-Book
Independent Publisher Book Awards
The island of Oahu is skyscrapers and rainforests, beaches and boutiques—but Special Agent Lei Texeira is drawn into a shadow world connected by death and the Internet.
Mysterious suicides draw Lei and her team, including tech specialist Sophie Ang, to hunt a criminal who plays with the thin gray line between right and wrong. Lei stirs up a hornet's nest on the investigation as her past reaches out in a twisted vine of old loves, new technologies and dark vendettas.
"Toby Neal scores a royal flush in this fifth of an unmissable crime series for mystery fans!" J.C. Martin, author of Oracle
Toby Neal was raised on Kaua`i in Hawaii. She wrote and illustrated her first story at age five and credits her counseling background with adding depth–from the villains to Lei Texeira, the courageous multicultural heroine of the Lei Crime Series, and all the rest of her characters. "I'm endlessly fascinated with people's stories."
