Toby Nealabout this book: My most dangerous, multilayered and risky novel yet, Black Jasmine is set on my personal home island of Maui.
Maui is blue ocean, big vistas, and whalesong—but organized crime has a hidden hold, and Detective Lei Texeira tracks evil that hides behind a beautiful face.
Lei finds a haven to settle into on cosmopolitan Maui—until her life as a couple with Stevens is interrupted by a case that won't let Lei sleep at night. A Jane Doe, going off a scenic bluff in an old Plymouth Volare, should have been ruled a suicide--but Lei is sure there's more to it. 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.
• "Another wonderful intersection of culture, crime and personal demons, you'll find yourself thinking you put the whole case together, only to be thrown at the very end in a twist you won't see coming. I can't say enough about what Toby Neal has accomplished as an author and what she has done to reveal Hawaii as a place of complexity and depth that despite its' beauty can be the setting for some of the darkest aspects of humanity. Get ready to be taken for a ride from start to finish. You will be immensely entertained." — From Kindle Customer Reviews
