Red Rain, Lei Crime Series 11, is live today!

I worked hard to resolve the cliffhanger ending of Bone Hook related to what happened to Stevens in record time, and I'm proud of this book!

What a suspenseful tale. Red Rain was just amazing to write, the first Lei Crime novel in which I did virtually no plotting or outlining. From the moment I decided I’d be in Stevens’s head for this journey, I was hooked. He had a lot going on, and resolving it and coming up with the twists at the end were some of the most fun I’ve ever had writing. And then there's Lei—really growing as a woman and a mother, learning to stick to things and see them through, curbing her impulses but expanding her ability to love and commit. Writing a series this long is such a wonderful journey!

Sergeant First Class Mary (M.L.) Doyle, who was my military consult for the book, said this about it: “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
