Black Jasmine

Lei Crime #3

The island of Maui is turquoise ocean, stunning vistas, and whalesong—but organized crime has a hidden hold, and Detective Lei Texeira tracks evil that hides behind a beautiful face.

Lei and Stevens find a haven on Maui—until their new life as a couple is interrupted by murder. When a nameless teenage girl dies in an apparent vehicular suicide, Lei can’t rest until she finds out what really happened. She blazes through all the wealth and poverty of island society in her quest for justice, rousing a deadly foe—even as she faces the personal demons of commitment and revenge that threaten the only real love she’s ever known.

  • Mary DeAngelo

Very well written, fast paced, covers Hawaiian culture and descriptions just enough to give the reader an idea of what living on the islands would be like.

  • Patti Wilson "Patti Saint Marie Wilson"

I love this series. A crime mystery set in Hawaii. Each book so far has been set on a different island. The characters and events are so real. I can't wait for the next one.
