Stolen in Paradise

Lei Crime Companion Novel

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’s 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. 

“Toby Neal’s usual breathless suspense plus Agent Marcella Scott’s sexiness feed this reader’s addiction!” Noelle Pierce, author of upcoming Constellation Series.

"Toby Neal's stories are always compelling, but adding the Voice of Sara H. to the mix makes the audiobook something really special!"

I appreciate the way Ms. Neal uses her therapeutic background to make her characters real, facing "hidden" challenges that we might rather pretend didn't exist, and thriving in the face of those challenges. This is perhaps my favorite Toby Neal story to date. They just keep getting better!

If I don't like a book or if it moves slowly or not at all, I delete it and go on to the next book. I LOVED all the books in the Lei series even though I had never heard of the author before I read the first book.

I can't say enough, except to say this crime mystery, served up with a couple spicy sides of psychology and sex, is delicious, and a whole lot of damn fun! If you're hungry for some down time and looking for a tasty read, download Stolen in Paradise...you won't be disappointed!
