Red Rain (Lei Crime #11)

“Persistently riveting…Neal’s writing is tenacious, highlighted by masterly crosscutting of two exhilarating storylines.”~ KIRKUS REVIEWS

In Hawaii, a red rain means the death, change, or birth of a chief.

The last thing detective Lei Texeira wants to do while her husband is overseas is deal with a child homicide cold case—but she gets one anyway, and it takes her beyond her personal limits. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Michael Stevens finds himself in a world filled with every kind of threat from crocodiles to kidnappers, and just getting home alive would be a miracle.

“Toby Neal is known for well-crafted and emotionally charged mysteries, and Red Rain may be her best yet. Neal gives us two suspenseful and unpredictable storylines, equally taut with intrigue and masterfully told, woven together in an intricately carved puzzle filled with the kind of inner character exploration we expect from a Lei Crime story. Neal pulls out all the stops on this one!” – M. L. Doyle, author of the Master Sergeant Harper Mysteries
