There’s a Hawaiian Storm coming. You can see the dark clouds overhead, hear the wind slashing through the trees and feel the spray from the waves smashing against the shore.
That’s right, Vanessa Storm is coming back on September 29 in the new, revised and expanded Torn Roots. Some of you may remember the title and the character from a version of the story, published as a Kindle Worlds novella. This new work adds new characters, new plot twists and new mystery to readers’ favourites.
I’m really happy with this cover, designed once again by David C. Cassidy. The image is a photograph taken in Maui, the setting of Torn Roots.
What it’s about
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.
