Hawaii is palm trees, black sand, and blue water, but for policewoman Lei Texeira, there’s a dark side to paradise.

Overcoming a past filled with scars, Lei makes a life for herself as a cop in the sleepy Big Island town of Hilo. When a routine patrol turns up two murdered teens, Lei’s world is rocked. She knows one of the girls.

Even as Lei is drawn into the case, the killer’s attention fixes on her.  

Despite the strain of being toyed with by a murderer, Lei is attracted to the lead detective, Michael Stevens--but she can’t afford distractions. Amidst an enchanting backdrop of Hawaii’s black sand beaches and shrouded fern forests, a killer’s closing in on her.

"Will Graham, Jack Reacher, and Alex Cross now have a worthy female counterpart in Lei Texeira. Blood Orchids satisfies on every level. A powerful new talent is on the scene, whole-heartedly recommended."-Drew Cross, former police officer and author of BiteMarks

    I love Toby Neal and every book I’ve read of hers has left me with some degree of a book hangover. After reading this one I’ve come to realize that I need to buckle up and brace myself because Lei Texeira is gonna take me on one hell of an adventure and I cannot wait!!!

    The names can be confusing though, like what kind of a last name is “Watanabe” anyway.

    By Gran0223
    Hard to stick with it through the first half (seemed slow & drawn out to me), but the pace picked up during the last half.
  • Awesome book

    By KWJN
    This book really kept my attention. It kept me guessing and trying to rule out killers. About then, it all changed. I loved the twists and turns. Then, I had to read until it was finished!i hope the rest of the series are as good!
