Stolen in Paradise, a Lei Crime Companion novel, will knock your heels off!
One betta fish, two dead biologists, three trysts, four suspects and thirty-five pairs of shoes add up to complicated days in paradise for Special Agent Marcella Scott.
Marcella gets into sand way over her Manolos investigating the death of a prominent scientist washed up on a Waikiki beach with a bullet hole between the eyes. BioGreen, a genetically-engineered algae that could solve the world fuel crisis, has been stolen from the development lab—a hotbed of intrigue where everyone on the project has something to hide.
Marcella also has a secret vice, more dangerous than expensive shoes—and it leads her into arms that are too close for comfort.
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR STOLEN:
“Marcella Scott, while hinting at layers of underlying emotional issues, actually comes through as one of the most bold, charismatic, accurate images of a strong, modern woman, with dynamic, take no prisoners attitude, and a healthy, robust sexual appetite, that I’ve ever read. Marcella Scott is the awesome chick you meet and instantly want to be friends with. She’s bold, she’s fearless, she’s sexy, and she owns it. She’s a woman I’ve met, and known, and loved, and laughed with. She’s real. The villain wasn’t who I thought it was, and the crime was interesting and well presented. I finished the book after 2 days, and said “damn”. I wasn’t ready to quit reading. ” (W. Reinig, Advance Copy Reader)
