Rip Tides

Lei Crime #9

A USA Today Bestselling Book
2016 Independent Publishers (IPPY) Bronze Medal for Best Suspense/Thriller!

Surfing in Hawaii can be power, fame, talent and… murder.

Poised to win the prestigious Triple Crown of Surfing, Maui surf star Makoa Simmons washes up tragically dead. Detective Lei Texeira plunges into a high-profile case whose dark and tangled motives reach deep into the elite world of professional surfing on the North Shore of Oahu. Lei must follow her instincts into new territory even as husband Michael Stevens struggles with heartbreak of another kind.

Listen to a clip from the audiobook of Rip Tides.

What Readers Say:

"Here is finally an exciting twisted case that doesn't directly involve Lei and husband Michael Stevens as the intended victims of revenge murder. The main crime case is a gritty tale of lovers and hidden feelings, and the drowning death of a surfing star." - Amazonia

"The mystery surrounding the murder is intriguing. But it's Toby's insider knowledge and attention to detail with regard to the Hawaiian surf community and the sport of surfing itself that bring this book to life." - Judith B.
