Twisted Vine, 5th in the #LeiCrimeSeries, is here!

So excited to bring out this fifth in the Lei Crime Series in which Lei Texeira, my impulsive, intrepid heroine, comes full circle on a number of levels.

Readers are raving:

“If you have been reading the Lei series you will be ready for this treat! Along with the usual page turning suspense you will finally see Lei truly come into her own as a professional and a woman. She has grown up and we have been there with her watching her from the PTSD wreck in book one to the still edgy (but in a good way) woman who is ready to make real choices for her life.
But enough about Lei. The story line of Twisted Vine is truly original and tackles a thorny moral conundrum with fairness that never feels preachy.
You are in for a great read… please say this isn't the last we have heard of Lei Texeira!!!”

and another:

“I have loved all the books in Toby Neal's Lei series and without sharing any spoilers,I must say Twisted Vine the best of a great series. If you are a fan, you will love this. If you haven't read these yet,you are in for a wonderful surprise!!”

(I did NOT add the extra exclamation points!!!)

Here's the blurb:

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

Oh and check out the amazing cover designer Julie Metz made with the photograph Mike Neal did of our lilikoi vines (shoot story in this post)!

Love this elegant, creepy interpretation of our vine photo.

Check it out! It debuted at #50 in Hot New Releases and is staying in the top 2,000 overall in Kindle Store, a first for one of my books.

Without my readers and fans, who fuel my writing passion with their passion for the characters, this amazing journey would never have happened. Thanks again to each of you.
