Scott Bury reveals TORN ROOTS for #LEICrimeKW (@ScottTheWriter)

Fellow Canadian and author, Scott Bury will soon be joining the ranks of authors writing for the Lei Crime Series on Kindle Worlds.

Eight authors, including myself, released books for Toby Neal’s series in April, and a second wave of books will hit AMAZON US end of this month. I will highlight the books over the next couple of weeks on my blog. I’m happy to say I’ll be releasing another book for the series too. šŸ˜‰

In the meantime, check out this gorgeous cover for Torn Roots, Scott’s upcoming novella for the Lei Crime series.

You can learn more about it on Scott’s blog as well.

torn roots

Hawaii is known for volcanoes and sandy beaches. Beauty and danger reign.

After breakingĀ a case of murderedĀ poachers in Mauiā€™s national park, Detective Pono Kaihale accepts a short-term position as Acting Lieutenant in Hana on the islandā€™sĀ rain-forestĀ coast.Ā HeĀ isĀ looking forward to redirecting lost hikers and moderating mild loversā€™ spats and enjoying the naturalĀ beauty of the southeast coast. But by his second week on the job, PonoĀ finds trouble here comes in unexpected forms.

Environmentalists, property developers, protesters, arsonists, kidnappers, and a rogue Homeland Security agent converge on his new post, Pono feels like the eye of a brewing storm. And when a new FBI agent gets involved, Pono realizes the stakes are much higher than a quiet period in his career.

Lives will be lost if he doesnā€™t solve this mystery quickly.

    Absolutely love the cover and looking forward to reading the book – I love the premise. Always thought Pono needed a storyline of his own. šŸ™‚
