Echoes by Scott Bury
You keep on guessing page after page, and it keeps you hooked all the time.
The Kahuna—“wizard” in old Hawai’ian—was the only one who could surprise Vanessa Storm when she was a teenager. When she’s an FBI Special Agent, though, things are different. She’s no longer a girl impressed with small-town bad boys.
But when Dylan, the Kahuna, asks her help for his little brother, who’s accused of shooting two Honolulu cops, she finds she still cannot say no to this man.
And that’s just the start of a mystery that echoes across 15 years.

Review by Author Samreen Ahsan:
I think this is one of the best work from Scott Bury. I’m a great fan of his writing and also read his previous Lei crime series but this one is the best. You keep on guessing page after page, and it keeps you hooked all the time.
Must read for all suspense crime fiction lovers
Review by Anima Giraldez:
Vanessa Storm is back! An old boyfriend has returned to the island to help a family member in trouble with the law. He’s asked Vanessa for help in clearing his brother’s name but there is plenty more to the story than anyone realizes.
If you’ve followed the Lei Crime Series you’ll recognize Yamada, Lei’s old partner from her stint in the FBI, and her old boss. The story is given in pieces as the events of one evening, almost two decades ago, is vitally important to current affairs. Everything boils down to what happened that one night and the effects of one decision.
Bury likes to incorporate the names of fellow Kindle World authors and it’s fun to see their involvement. It’s not necessary to read Bury’s other works in this KW but it gives a little history of Storm. This was another excellent novel and a perfect example of a Kindle World story, taking a secondary character in the primary series and developing another world for them.
