Praise for The Green Room"This tale will remind you of classic mysteries, blending detective work and adventure-this time, into the extreme sport world of competitive big wave surfing." -Jan Burke, award-winning author of the Irene Kelly mysteries"Peppered throughout with surfing terms, Hawaiian dialect, and gorgeous descriptions of O'ahu's North Shore." --Publishers WeeklyLawyer Storm Kayama needs to build her clientele.
So when surf promoter Marty Barstow's wife, Stephanie, walks into her office, Storm agrees to represent her. And when Stephanie's son Ben-a promising surfer-invites her to O'ahu's North Shore to watch a surfing contest, Storm jumps at the chance.
Besides, her distant cousin Nahoa Pi'ilani will also compete.
But when a child delivers a package to Nahoa containing an ancient Hawaiian weapon, Storm recognizes the lei o mano.
It's a threat, a call to battle. Soon, as if she were in the green room-the underwater space where tons of churning water can imprison a surfer-Storm is buffeted and disoriented by local legend, greed, and cutthroat competition.
She must finally confront a killer and a haunting incident from her past. Deborah Turrell Atkinson lives in Hawai'i with her husband and two children.
Her deep interest in the native myths and lore that abound among Hawai'i's rich and varied cultures colors her books.
The Green Room is her second novel after Primitive Secrets. www.debbyatkinson.com
