Hawaiian Storm mystery book 1
Mystery, Police / Detective
September 29, 2018
In Maui, a missing woman, a firebrand environmentalist and a taciturn geologist add up to a mystery for FBI Special Agent Vanessa Storm—the woman who sees through every lie.
Vanessa Storm thought her first week on the job as an FBI Special Agent in beautiful Hawaii would be about settling in. But she’s immediately sent to Hana on Maui's rain-soaked shore to find a kidnapped woman.
Throw in arson, strident environmentalists bent on stirring up strife between local rights activists and foreign property developers, a chill local police lieutenant, a taciturn geologist, and top it all off with a rogue, unpredictable Homeland Security agent.
The case becomes a labyrinth twisting through the jungles on Maui’s volcano. Vanessa knows this case will explode into an international incident and lives will be lost if she doesn’t find answers fast.
