Summary

The author of the acclaimed Sanctus trilogy conjures an eerie epic of good and evil, retribution and redemption—the first novel in the mesmerizing Solomon Creed series in which a man with no memory of his past must save a lost soul in a small Arizona town. 
On a hilltop in the town of Redemption, Arizona, the townspeople gather at an old cemetery for the first time in decades to bury a local man. The somber occasion is suddenly disrupted by a thunderous explosion in the distant desert. A plane has crashed, and it’s pouring a pillar of black smoke into the air. 
As Sheriff Garth Morgan speeds toward the crash, he nearly hits a tall, pale man running down the road, with no shoes on his feet and no memory of who he is or how he got there. The only clues to his identity are a label in his handmade suit jacket and a book that’s been inscribed to him: both giving the name Solomon Creed. When Morgan tells Solomon that he is in Redemption, Arizona, Solomon begins to believe he’s here for a reason—to save a man he has never met . . . the man who was buried that morning. 
Miles away, three men scan the skies for an overdue plane carrying an important package. Spotting a black cloud in the distance, they suspect something has gone badly wrong, and that the man who has sent them will demand a heavy price if the package has been lost. 
To uncover the secret of his identity, Solomon Creed must uncover Redemption’s secrets too and learn the truth behind the death of the man he is there to save. But there are those who will do anything to stop him, men prepared to call on the darkest forces to prevent Solomon from seeing the light.

    ***From award-winning, USA Today bestselling author Toby Neal, whose writing Kirkus Reviews calls “persistently riveting,” comes the Lei Crime Series! *** 
     
    Twisted Vine (5), Shattered Palms (6), Dark Lava (7) and Fire Beach (8), the AWARD-WINNING next four books of the Lei Crime Series, are put together into a one-volume immersive reading experience that will take you to Hawaii and the world of fast-paced mysteries solved by multicultural detective Lei Texeira. No one can read just one!  
    “Toby Neal is one of my favorite authors and the Lei Crime Series is awesome! A good book is always about the characters, and Toby's characters have become my friends. They are flawed, have depth, and evolve beautifully over the series, and her mysteries are complex and compelling. So many books that use Hawaii as a setting are obnoxious, but Toby, raised here in the Islands, "gets” the true culture. Some series lose steam over time, but the Lei Crime Series keeps getting stronger with each book. Good thing the author is so prolific because I’m always impatient for the next one!” ~Kim, Amazon Reviewer

And now he has a murder to solve. For longer than anyone can remember, white-haired gentleman Murray Cardew has lived in the Beaumont, his presence lending the debonair class of a bygone era. But when the dapper old fellow is found murdered in his room, suspicion falls on Digger Sullivan, a rakish playboy who was recently caught trying to rob his ex-lover’s suite. And as Chambrun and his press man, the indefatigable Mark Haskell, investigate Sullivan’s past, they find a tangled conspiracy of murder and intrigue with roots in one of the deadliest conflicts the African continent has ever seen.

    Hollywood wanted to cast them as heavies. The Mafia wanted them dead. 
    'Action that's faster than a speeding bullet' 
    Bwana and Roger, U.S. Special Forces operatives, are vacationing in Hollywood when an agent offers to cast them as heavies. 
    They decline. They go up against real world criminals and terrorists; the make-believe world is of no interest to them. 
    However, when an A-lister hires them for their skills, they enter into the celebrity world. 
    It is also a world which the Mafia inhabit, and the gangsters don't like the operatives on their turf.  
    Before long, the glamorous facade drops and the ugly underbelly of Hollywood is revealed. One of assassins, porn rings, and murder. 
    Like a movie script however, there's a twist in the tale; one in which the good guys will not be the last men standing. 
    'Ty Patterson's thrillers should come with a health warning: Highly Addictive'
