Paradise hides darkness behind a beautiful face.
The teen in the car at the base of the cliff is no suicide.
When a nameless young girl is found in a crashed vehicle on the rocks of one of Maui's black lava cliffs, Detective Lei Texeira can't rest until she finds out what really happened. She blazes through all the wealth and poverty of Maui island society in her quest for justice, even as she faces the personal demons of commitment and revenge that threaten the only real love she's ever known.
That girl should never have crossed me.
I know who I am—a procurer of beautiful things for people who can afford them. Men and women for pleasure, fine art for collectors, and money for the mob. Lei Texeira is nothing but an annoyance. I'll take everything she loves, burn down her house, and take her life, too...just because I can.

Grab this fast paced mystery with a twist of romance, and take a trip to Hawaii with the series that's sold more than a million copies!
This book might start a bit slowly and seem somewhat familiar, but moved on quickly with the same great characters and a decent plot.
This is book #3 in the Lei crime series. I read Blood Orchids as well and loved them both. I have now ordered book #2, as well as 4 and 5. That is how much I am enjoying these stories.
Always in trouble, always a wreck, happiness and sadness all the way to the end.
