Two of my favorites in the Lei Crime series: Vanessa and Lei are involved in a mystery in Hana, Maui on an estate of a Famous singer. Involves Murders, and no one can leave this mansion because of the
storms and heavy rains, so we have quite a few people/suspects with lots of action and mystery. Very interesting story with twists and turns. This novella keeps you interested and is hard to put down. Super story Scott Bury. Keep them coming.

Special agents are brought in when a famous singer is found dead near a sacred heiau. Then, two more bodies are found. Det. Lei and agent Vanessa are at work solving this in spite of a raging storm on Maui. Good read, tho a bit wordy at times.

Dead Man Lying

Wow, a fast paced, page turning, who done it, thriller. Full of twists and turns and a believable plot in beautiful Hana, Maui. The storm is authentic and I loved the heiau being given back to the Hawaiians. Great addition to the Lei Crime Series.

I was drawn in from the beginning to one of the new additions of the Lei Crime Kindle World series novellas by Scott Bury. It's fast paced-something mystery lovers can relate to-and a fun read full of twists and turns and nefarious characters. FBI Special Agent Vanessa Storm and Lex Texeira team up to solve a series of murders on the estate of a country western has-been singer in Maui. Family greed, multiple self-serving likable and unlikeable characters keep us guessing until the end. I'm intri ...more

Shelves: adventure
Exciting crime scene at an aging musicians home with my two favorite LEOs, Texeira and Storm. Rain storms, guns, drugs and screaming women all in one story. Bury knows how to keep the story real and give up a few laughs while dropping subtle clues about the murder. Great series with Agent Storm.
